Moss Rosenberg have plans for the building of 165,000-cu m LNG carriers. The present article gives a summary description of the company's design for a twin-screw ship of this size with steam-turbine propulsion. Two sets of General Electric MST-14 or other steam turbines totalling 60,000 shp, or alternatively two sets totalling 80,000 shp, may be fitted; two Foster Wheeler ESD III boilers are provided. Trials speed loaded, on about 12.8 m draught, would be approximately 21.9 knots (60,000 shp) or 23.3 knots (80,000 shp). The five aluminium-alloy tanks, of the Moss Rosenberg spherical type, have capacities of 25,700 cu m (No. 1) or 34,825 cu m (Nos. 2-5). Their equator profiles and steel skirts are improvements on the previous configurations used. Cargo loading and discharging time are each about 15 hr. The article gives further information on this ship design, including the international and national regulations and the structural requirements, materials specifications, and weld tests that it would conform to, and the cargo and machinery controls and instrumentation to be provided, General-arrangement and midship-section drawings, tank-construction drawings, and preliminary hydrostatic curves are included.
