CONSTRUCTION PROCEDURE OF TANKS OF A HITACHI ZOSEN-CBI SPHERICAL TANK LNG CARRIER

This report explains the construction procedure of the spherical tanks of a Hitachi Zosen-CBI spherical tank LNG carrier. Two spherically curved shell plates which are formed by newly developed pressing dies are joined together first. Then these parts are assembled in horizontal rings. These rings are assembled one by one to complete a spherical tank. After testing, insulation work is carried out. Each tank is lifted by a floating crane to be installed on a double hull type LNG carrier. Then tank fixing and remaining insulation work are carried out.
