The world's largest liquefied ethylene gas carrier under construction at Shanghai's Jiangnan Shipyard (Group) Co Ltd was named Navigator Aurora on Tuesday ahead of its delivery later this month to London-based Navigator Gas, a major operator of liquefied gas carriers.

The 180-meter ship with a capacity of 37,500 cubic meters will be used to carry ethylene from a refinery in Pennsylvania to the south of Sweden, according to Tommy Hjalmas, director of newbuilds and special projects at Navigator Gas.

Since the late 1990s, Navigator Gas has placed a series of orders for LEG and liquefied natural gas carriers with Jiangnan Shipyard, said Lin Ou, chairman and general manager of the company.
