330,000 CU M VEROLME LNG CARRIER
This paper describes a concept for a Very Large Gas Carrier (VLGC) of 300,000--400,000-cu m LNG capacity, capable of operating over long-distance routes from the Persian Gulf to Europe, the U.S.A. and Japan. The hull of the ship is a conventional container-ship adapted to take the cryogenic containment system. This consists of a number of vertical aluminum cylinders which are fabricated outside the ship. Special attention has been given to the safety aspect. The subjects considered in the paper are; the ship's hull, the cryogenic containment system including insulation, boil-off, loading and unloading of LNG, instrumentation, gauging and leak detection. Order from BSRA as No. 51,160.
