LNG: entering a growth market

The two LNG carriers under construction are built with proven technology:

  • The ships are optimized for efficiency and flexibility with tri-fuel diesel electric propulsion.
  • Increased tank insulation results in a reduced boil-off rate of 0.10 percent per day, so gas is not wasted during transport.
  • The vessels have a four-stage LD compressor that allows more flexible handling of boil-off gas.
  • Specially designed fuel-saving fins on the hull increase propulsive efficiency and make the vessels more fuel-efficient.
  • Marorka telemetry will be installed on the vessels to facilitate continuous proactive management of the vessels’ technical performance. This should enable more energy-efficient, sustainable, and competitive ship management.
