ABS AIP FOR TWO DSIC LNG BULKER DESIGNS
China’s Dalian Shipbuilding Industry Group Co (DSIC) has received an AiP from ABS for a 208,000 DWT bulk carrier and a 260,000 DWT VLOC design concept capable of using LNG as fuel.
Both designs incorporate a Type C LNG fuel tank in the open area of the aft deck, which DSIC says minimizes the influence on the arrangement of the deck house and increases cargo capacity.
DSIC believes the optimized aft deck integrated arrangement achieved the modular design concept for the LNG gas supply system, safety system and filling system and makes for convenient installation and maintenance.
“ABS has extensive experience of LNG as a marine fuel and it is a privilege to work closely with DSIC on these projects,” said Patrick Janssens, ABS Vice President, Global Gas Solutions. “China shipbuilders have a fantastic record of innovation in LNG and, as a recognized global leader in gas, ABS is proud to assist these significant industry technological developments.”
