Saga LNG Shipping Pte Ltd. LNG LNT 45

45 000 m3 Medium Size LNG Carrier

The Contract Design has been performed by LNG New Technology and the project has been evaluated by FKAB Marine Design. FKAB is also performing an extended Basic Design package including lines. The design is based on the LNT A-Box containment system, which is patented. The tank configuration gives an excellent volume utilization and allows providing an efficient hull.

The propulsion system features one dual fuel main engine, mechanical connected to a single shaft propeller. The auxiliaries are be able to burn natural gas.

LNG New Technologies has developed a novel containtment system for LNG referred to as the LNT A-BOX. It has been developed according to the IMO IGC Code and has been granted and Approved in Principal by DNV GL, ABS and BV. The system consists of an IMO independent tank type A placed in an insulated hold space. The LNT A-BOX combines proven technologies in a new safe and cost effective configuration. LNT A-BOX offers a number of advantages compared to other containment systems for LNG, such as:

  • Self supporting and solid primary barrier and a full secondary barrier.
  • Two independent barriers – high degree of safety.
  • Full access to both barriers for inspection and maintenance.
  • Cost effective design and construction
  • Easy fabrication – enabling new yards to enter the LNG sector
  • Prismatic design – excellent volume utilization and flat deck layout.
  • Sloshing mitigated – no loading limitations.
