THE TECHNICAL SOLUTION
GHENOVA carried out the conceptual design of a bunker / feeder of 119.35 meters in length and with a total LNG capacity of 10,000 m3 distributed in two tanks. Dual-electric drive. 1100 mile range. Crew 15.
In order to comply with the restrictions on the main dimensions to allow access to certain ports, after a study of alternatives for the selection of the cargo containment system, membrane tanks were specified due to the fact that it reduced the clogging of the tanks, and therefore, the dimensions of the ship at the same carrying capacity. This was also justified in the operational profile proposed for the ship.
INTERNAL ASSESSMENT OF THE PROJECT
The project was a challenge due to the short time available, the uniqueness of the product, and the innovative aspects involved. The solution obtained met all the requirements demanded by the client, increased knowledge and capabilities in technologies for the use of LNG as a fuel, and serves as a reference for this emerging sector.
