Herbert Engineering Corp of Alameda, CA has been 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 promises to significantly improve the efficiency and safety of the transportation of High Value Gases. “We are very happy to be a part of this project supporting Agility Gas with this design development”, added Spencer Schilling, President of HEC.
