The world merchant fleet comprises about 5,000 gas and chemical tankers of various sizes, transporting several hundred million tons of gas per year. Especially petrochemical gases, like ethylene, play an essential role in modern production techniques.
Due to their complex equipment, gas tankers are among the technically most advanced ships sailing the oceans today. Managing and maintaining them successfully calls for profound knowledge and a wealth of experience.
The Hartmann Group’s sophisticated fleet of fully-refrigerated, semi-refrigerated and pressurized gas tankers serves the international major oil and chemical industry for more close to 40 years now. We handle different sizes and types of liquefied gas cargoes on high quality gas tankers, providing full technical management, as well as commercial management on the basis of spot and time charter and contracts of affreightment.
