This was followed by the delivery of the four 5,000m³ vessels including the Epic St. Croix and Epic St. Thomas in 2014 and the bareboat chartered in 11,000m³ Epic Sicily in 2015.

The acquisition of the vessels implicates the company’s attempt to establish high quality fleet of long term controlled assets across the full pressurised sector of 3,300m³ to 11,000m³ coupled with new building programme of two 7500m³ vessels and four 11000m³ vessels as well as an additional 11000m³ new building to be delivered under a bareboat charter to Epic Gas.
