From spot voyages and time charters to Contracts of Affreightment (CoAs), our emphasis on flexible, reliable service has earned the trust of leading oil companies as well as trading and utility companies.
24 BW LPG vessels were awarded the Qualship 21 certification. Less than 10% of all foreign-flagged ships that operate in the United Sates meet the eligibility requirements of this programme, putting our qualified vessels in an elite class.
BW LPG has one of the lowest cash cost breakeven levels per vessel across the industry. BW LPG is substantially more cost efficient on OPEX, financing and General and Administrative expenses (G&A) on a per vessel day basis.
Technology and meteorology combines to provide the fleet with weather routing and regular voyage prognoses, mitigating weather-related risks to our voyages. On transpacific voyages between the US Gulf and Far East, scheduling of our fleet is efficient and accurate.
Hydrodynamic improvements − propeller polish, hull inspections, trim optimisation, propeller boss cap fins, mewis duct, use of auxiliary engines and; specific fuel oil consumption – these make up the many considerations that we think about.
Acting for the Future
BW LPG announced in September 2018 that it had signed contracts including future options for the delivery and retrofitting of four LPG-propelled dual-fuel engines in its fleet, in a world-first initiative. BW LPG expects the first retrofitting to take place in conjunction with scheduled dry dockings starting from 2020.
