Hartmann took delivery of the first LNG-powered LEG carrier in this series of three vessels, GasChem Fuji, in April this year.

This vessel serves a charter deal with Japan’s Marubeni.

GasChem Services, a part of Leer-based and family-owned Hartmann, expects to take delivery of the second vessel GasChem Alster in summer, and GasChem Phoenix by the end of this year.
