Our Fleet

Our Fleet

BW LPG has applied a consistent life-cycle maintenance philosophy, ensuring a high standard of maintenance throughout a vessel's lifetime.

Our Fleet

At BW LPG, we serve customers with the world’s largest fleet of Very Large Gas Carriers (VLGCs) with a total carrying capacity of over 3 million CBM. We own and operate the largest fleet of LPG-powered VLGCs which deliver cleaner-burning energy with the sector’s lowest emissions profile.  
 
A world leader in LPG shipping, BW LPG has five decades of operating experience in LPG shipping and experienced seafarers and staff, BW LPG offers a flexible and reliable service to customers. With a global presence in seven countries, BW LPG operates out of Singapore and is incorporated in Bermuda.

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.

See cleaner energy at work. 

We own and operate the world’s only VLGCs to be retrofitted with LPG dual-fuel propulsion technology, giving us lower emissions and larger savings.

The world’s largest fleet of VLGCs at your service.

With over 40 VLGCs in our fleet, we offer high vessel availability to match open fixtures.  In addition, our LPG powered VLGCs refuel as they load, reducing turnaround time and increasing commercial availability.

An award-winning fleet.

Our vessels are maintained to the highest standards, with industry-leading low numbers of SIRE and CDI observations. Over half of our fleet have been 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.

Work with experience.

For over 50 years, we have been shipping LPG to world markets. Over the years, we combine operational experience with innovative and flexible solutions for our customers. As part of the BW Group, we also have access to the capabilities of many leading maritime and energy companies.

An emphasis on Zero Harm.

Safety is a corporate priority and always comes first. Because only then can customers rely on us to do our jobs.  Only then can energy be delivered to world markets, and only then can our colleagues go home safe.

Say no to bribery and corruption.

We are a member of the Maritime Anti-Corruption Network, and we insist on the highest standards of integrity from ourselves and our partners.

Focused on ESG.

At BW LPG, we are committed to sustainability and decarbonization for the long haul. To deliver energy with BW LPG is to ship smarter, more sustainably, and more cost effectively.
