CONCRETE LNG-VESSEL DESIGN REDUCES MAINTENANCE, IMPROVES SAFETY

Design features of the world's first concrete LNG carrier with a capacity of 128,000 cu m are highlighted. Developed by an Anglo-German-American team, this new carrier design is expected to reduce capital investment requirements and to have lower operating costs than conventional steel carriers of the same size. Safety features and operating advantages of the concrete carrier are also discussed.
