CGL carrier design to set transport standards
A project for two large Compressed Gas Liquid (CGL) carriers aims to set new standards in CGL cargo transportation.
A letter of intent has been signed by Sembcorp Marine Specialised Shipbuilding Pte Ltd and SeaOne Caribbean LLC of Houston, Texas, USA, for the design and construction of the unique neo-panamax CGL carrier, which will be based on SeaOne’s single gas and liquids cargo delivery requirements.
“Sembcorp Marine is very excited to partner with SeaOne on the CGL carrier project,” said Freddie Woo, head of specialised shipbuilding, Sembcorp Marine.
“By combining our respective expertise, I believe this collaboration will result in high-performing vessels that set the standards for CGL cargo transportation.”
The design will incorporate proprietary ship component ideas from Sembcorp Marine subsidiary LMG Marin, a leading naval architect and ship design house in Europe.
At 366m long, the 2 billion cubic feet (Bcf) capacity carriers will be equipped with SeaOne’s patented CGL technology and systems.
The SeaOne CGL containment system operates independently within insulated cargo holds maintained at -40ºC and is not integral to the vessel design.
The CGL carriers will run on IMO Tier III diesel engines with a maximum sailing speed of 20 knots. They will be ABS-classed and under the Marshall Islands flag.
Front-end engineering design (FEED) studies for the project are in progress.
When completed, the vessels will be deployed for SeaOne’s Caribbean Fuels Supply Project.
