Major agreement for LNG boxship study signed during SMM

DNV GL, GTT, Hanjin join forces to develop a gas fuelled large container vessel with membrane tanks Hanjin, GTT and DNV GL have signed an agreement to jointly investigate and to develop a gas fuelled large container vessel concept equipped with membrane fuel tanks. The project partners presented the Joint Development Project (JDP) as part of the DNV GL Forum at SMM 2014 in Hamburg, the world's leading maritime trade fair.The JDP partners will work together to develop a concept for sailing long distances on LNG by using technologies which are either well proven technologies (containment for LNG as cargo) or already deployed in the market (dual fuel low speed two stroke engines) and the associated systems.The concept study focusses on a 16300 TEU Container vessel designed by Hanjin Shipyard, sailing from Asia to Europe. Such a profile would mean that the vessel has to pass, at least in Europe, through a Sulfur Emission Control Area (SECA), and therefore comply with the upcoming emission limitations related to sulfur.Left to Right: Jun-Keun Choi, Senior Design Engineer Hanjin Heavy Industries, Benjamin Scholz, DNV GL Maritime Ship Type Expert of Gas Carriers, Arthur Barret, LNG Bunkering Program Director, GTT, at the presentation at ...
