The Owner is looking to develop a 30.000 m3 LNG/multigas carrier under a potential 15 year time charter contract with a US major.
Significant economies of scale are sought, since containment tank systems for such ships are either too expensive and complicated in structure or too heavy and with low volumetric efficiency.
At the same time, a wide beam ship concept is preferred since the ship needs to reach max 6m of draft.
The solution is found via a customized super-wide beam shallow draft design incorporating an innovative Type B containment tank system that has a simple structure and provides less production risk at the Shipyard, while enabling a volumetric efficiency of 78%.
FINOCEAN undertakes to support the Owner in:
- Evaluating and selecting the best design features for such ship with the particular Type B tank,
- Supporting the Type B tank manufacturer to optimize the supply scope specification to fit a cost-efficient approach to the Yard,
- Supporting the Broker of the Owner to deliver improved specifications and discuss with the Shipyards on the suitable production procedures,
- Undertaking project management after the newbuilding contract signed in the Yard, in co-ordination with the Newbuilding team.
