Mr. Yee Yang Chien, President and Group Chief Executive Officer of MISC said, “We are proud to welcome Seri Everest, our first VLEC into MISC’s existing fleet. With this first delivery, our VLEC has set a new benchmark in the ethane market. Seri Everest has the capacity of transporting large
scale ethane over long distance while ensuring the highest level of safety and reliability. We hope to continue to capitalise on this opportunity as we are confident that we will gain a strong foothold to cater to the increasing demand in this niche segment.”
“We are also pleased that Seri Everest is delivered according to schedule amidst the disruption caused by the global COVID-19 pandemic. This successful delivery reflects the industry’s resilience in picking up its momentum with the commitment to safety by all parties. I would like to thank
everyone who has contributed to this achievement”, he added.
Seri Everest will be chartered to STL for a firm period of 15 years and managed by Eaglestar Shipmanagement Gas (S) Pte. Ltd. As the second generation VLECs, Seri Everest and the other five VLECs are the largest vessels of its kind in the world. The VLECs serve as a more economical
and viable solution for large-scale ethane transportation with more than 98,000 cbm of total cargo capacity. Both shipyards in Korea, SHI and Hyundai Heavy Industries Co., Ltd., are constructing the rest of the five VLECs scheduled to be delivered in the first half of 2021.
