Multi Gas Carrier


The FKAB/IMS L7 design is a tailor made Multi Gas Carrier for transportation of LPG/LEG/LNG for particular trades, with optimized cargo volume by using three very well insulated bilobe tanks, classified by IMO as “Independent tank type C” .Each tank is equipped with two submerged deep well pumps. The cargo system is designed for two segregations in any combination of cargo tanks and connected to one deck tank for changing of cargo grades.

The main fuel is LNG, from storage tanks or from LNG boil-off .The main engine and auxiliaries can also run on HFO or MDO. The FKAB/IMS L7 is designed for low fuel consumption with among others a slender well balanced hull, large propeller and smart energy use. Shaft generator for variable RPM for the best combination of pitch and propeller revolution at each speed and draught.

The FKAB/IMS L7 is designed for good maneuvering through a high lift rudder and bow thruster and “take me home” proplusion through PTI, which also can be used boosting the speed. Heat recovery systems are installed where commercial feasible.
