CONCRETE SHIP ECONOMICS
The paper briefly describes the work that has been carried out since 1972 on a new concept for the transportation of LNG, using a reinforced concrete hull self-propelled carrier with insulated cargo tanks formed within the hull. A 128,000 cum LNG-carrier, 288 m long and 44 m wide is described in some detail. The economic and environmental advantages are outlined, and comparison is made with the conventional steel LNG-carriers.
