The efforts related to conception, development, and delivery of cryogenic liquid carrying ships are laden with more than the usual hazards one encounters in arranging for construction of less exotic vessels. This article discusses a means of putting a cryogenic liquid ship into service very quickly, in perhaps a year or a year and a half. The means includes the conversion of a conventional tanker into a cryogenic carrier by insulating the cargo tanks. The proposed insulation method is described, with expected advantages discussed.
