18 Liquid Propane Gas tanks

The Virgin Islands welcomed the arrival of 18 Liquid Propane Gas (LPG) storage tanks, which will play a key role in reducing the consumption of local fossil fuel. It is expected that demand will go down by 60% and ultimately tax payers’ electricity bills will be reduced by some 30%.

BigLift carried the LPG tanks in three shipments from Westdorpe, the Netherlands. Happy Ranger made two consecutive voyages with eight tanks each time and Transporter carried the two remaining pieces.

Some creative solutions were necessary to stow these big tanks. They were quite impressive at about 315 mt, with a length of 53 m and being nearly 7 m in diameter. Therefore, Happy Ranger crossed the Atlantic Ocean twice with two tanks protruding slightly over her portside. It goes without saying that BigLift engineering made sure that the tanks were sufficiently sea fastened and that all the cargo safely reached St Croix.
