LPG tankers are designed to carry large amounts of bulked liquefied petroleum gas and are divided into several categories such as fully pressurised gas carriers, semi-pressurised ships, ethylene and gas/chemical, fully refrigerated and liquefied natural gas LNG carriers. These ships need to pay close attention to security because the carried gases are toxic and highly flammable.
Since the beginning of the tankers era fully pressurised carriers have been in use, and fully refrigerated were introduced in later years. Fully refrigerated tankers provide larger capacity.
The main characteristics of today’s liquefied petroleum gas carriers are high speed coupled with high propeller load. This requires an associated high powering performance and reduced complete resistance, but also an exceptional after body style with an excellent flow towards the propeller (s) and rudder (s) without flow separation. LPG tankers are largely sailing with conventional single screw propulsion.
