KSS adds another VLGC

KSS Line has gone to Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) for an 84,000 cu m VLGC, paying $77m for the ship that will deliver by the end of 2017.

The South Korean LPG and chemical shipping line already has two VLGCs on order at HHI, one ordered just six weeks ago. KSS Line’s current fleet includes five VLGCs.
