Concept Development of Large Cryogenic Liquid Transport of High Value Gases

Herbert Engineering was selected by Agility Gas Technology of Park Ridge NJ to develop a ship design concept that will capitalize on Agility’s novel, less expensive yet safer technology to build large atmospheric-pressure cryogenic-liquid chemical transport ships. Specific designs are under development for very large volume liquid ethylene, ethane and propylene transport.

According to Charles Matar, CEO of Agility, "Our choice to engage HEC was an easy one since HEC has vast experience in Naval Architecture and Engineering including the design of Very Large Liquefied Gas Carriers in support of LNG projects.”

Agility Gas Technology’s unique patented technology is designed to significantly improve the efficiency and safety of the transportation of High Value Gases.

HEC provides ship design, engineering analysis, and marine consulting services to shipowners, operators, charterers, shipyards, and government agencies worldwide. Our primary area of expertise is in the conceptual, preliminary, and contract design of commercial vessels. We have extensive experience in newbuildings and conversions of tankers, LNG carriers, containerships, break-bulk carriers and RoRos.
