The 38,000 m LEG ship previously built by CIMC SOE for Hartmann Group

Recently, Nantong CIMC Sinopacific Offshore & Engineering Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as "CIMC SOE"), a subsidiary of CIMC Enric, signed an order contract with Hartmann Group of Germany for 3+2 5000 cubic meters of dual-fuel full-pressure LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) carriers.

This series of carriers adopts MAN's LPG dual-fuel main engine and is the world's first dual-fuel full-pressure LPG carrier. Under the condition that the total length of the control is not more than 100  m, the hull line and arrangement are optimized in depth. The carrier meets the requirements of the latest specifications and all its performances reach the world's leading level. Compared with the traditional full-pressure LPG ships, the carrier has the advantages of low fuel consumption and environmental protection.

During the COVID-19 epidemic, CIMC SOE, relying on the advantages of CIMC Group, actively promoted exchanges with customers by using the online office conference system. Through "cloud meeting" and "cloud signing", the Company promoted the smooth implementation of the project while protecting the health of personnel.

Hartmann Group has a good cooperative relationship with CIMC SOE for more than ten years. CIMC SOE has delivered a number of ships with excellent performance to Hartmann Group, including the "Gaschem Beluga", one of the world's top 10 ships in 2017.The signing of new orders during the epidemic shows Hartmann Group's trust in CIMC SOE and the firm confidence of both sides in the future LPG ship market.

CIMC SOE is the world's leading manufacturer of LPG carriers. Its products cover liquefied petroleum gas, liquefied ethylene gas, liquefied natural gas and other types of ships. Currently, the products under construction also include the 20,000 m and 7,500 m LNG (liquefied natural gas) transport and bunkering ships, of which the 20,000 LNG tanker is currently the largest LNG bunkering ship in the world.
