SAFETY CONSIDERATIONS IN THE DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION OF TANKERS FOR CRYOGENIC CARGOES
The beginnings of tanker operations involving the carriage of cryogenic gases in bulk are described. Problem areas in the design of the ship's structure and cargo handling systems are dealt with and various solutions and outlined. The development of design standards for such vessels by the American Bureau of Shipping is described. The emphasis of the paper is directed towards ships intended for the transportation of liquefied natural gas (LNG) and methane at cryogenic temperatures. Service experience of cryogenic tankers is briefly reported and recent developments are noted.
