HGK Shipping launches “flagship of the gas tanker fleet”

Europe’s largest inland shipping company HGK Shipping launched a highlight from its fleet on 25 April.

In the presence of customers, including ‘the godmother from BASF’, the modern tanker “GAS 95” was officially put into operation in the Port of Duisburg.

The new diesel-electric-powered vessel, which has been in service since the beginning of the year, operates between the ARA ports and various transshipment ports on the Rhine for customers from the chemical industry.

Its draught optimisation ensures operational readiness even in low water phases.
