AN ICEBREAKING LNG TANKER FOR USE ON THE ST. LAWRENCE SEAWAY AND GREAT LAKES
The vessel under discussion is an Icebreaking LNG Tanker capable of navigating the St. Lawrence Seaway System and also the Canadian Arctic. The idea of an Icebreaking LNG Tanker design is for American and Canadian use especially designed for the Lakes Region which has the largest concentration of people and industry. Also, with the increasing prices of other fossil fuels, LNG is becoming the fuel that may have to supply our growing needs and it is not something that we have the time to think about in the future but we must do so now, today. As LNG is becoming more in demand, LNG transport is a rapidly expanding, changing and challenging technology.
