LNG carrier design
In cooperation with customers and partners, Brevik Technology has developed a groundbreaking LNG carrier design, ideal for implementing the Brevik Technology LNG Containment System (LNGCS). This system has proven to be very adaptable for implementation in existing vessel designs, owned by shipyards and design companies looking to expand their vessel design portfolio.
In addition to FLNG designs companies, the solution is already implemented in the design portfolio to the following companies:
LNG Containment Solution tanks (LNGCS) shall be delivered as a complete unit, ready to be lifted onboard the vessel. The line characteristics of the vessels double hull are developed with focus on optimize the fuel consumption during high speed, even in rough weather.
The hull is designed with focus on a streamline integration of the preassembled LNG Containment Solution. LNGCS is not fixed to the hull structure and shall according to US regulations be considered as “loose equipment”.
The solution is designed with focus on fulfilling the requirement for FLNG and other applications that by nature will operate with variable free surface elevation. The approval process with DNVGL has documented that “sloshing” in the tank, even with partly filling, will not cause any cracking of the primary barrier in the tank. The location of LNGCS tanks in the vessel cargo hull resulting in a flat main deck ideal for interfacing stools for the process modules.
The vessel design is scalable and currently developed for the following two sizes: 30k CM and 125k CM cargo capacity.
The LNG carrier design is developed to meet customers' demands, tailor-made for:
- High speed during transit
- None operational restrictions regards to cargo level in the tanks
- None operational restrictions regards to sloshing in the tanks during rough weather conditions
- LNG Containment Solution (LNGCS), detached from the ship hull structure
- Parallel fabrication of LNGCS and ship hull
