Japan’s shipbuilder Kawasaki Heavy Industries (KHI) is showing a new design of LNG fueled container ship. The design and development are at an advanced stage and Classification Society DNV has granted Approval in Principle.The container ship, of 9,000 TEU capacity, has an LOA of 1,010 ft (308 m), beam of 157 ft (48 m) and draft of 47 ft (14.5 m). The ship will be propelled by a single, electronically controlled, slow speed, two stroke, dual fuel main engine and will be offered with EGR which satisfies IMO Tier3 requirements. It is the first time that Type B, LNG storage tanks will be used on such a large container ship. Type B tanks continuously produce boil-off evaporating LNG and must be used up for propulsion or powering auxiliaries in port, for example supplying power for reefer containers. [More]
