On January 22nd, FKAB signed, in competition with other European design companies, a Basic Design contract, with the Chinese shipyard Xiamen Shipbuilding Industry Co, Ltd for a 45,000 cbm medium size LNG carrier.

The pre design was performed by LNG New Technologies (LNT). FKAB has, during the last months examined the proposed design and will, as soon as the shipbuilding contract becomes effective, commence the design.

The extended Basic Design includes also model tests, FEM calculations of the entire vessel, which will also include the independent cargo tanks.

The independent cargo tanks, with the second barrier and insulation, called LNT A-Box, have also been developed by LNT. The technology consists of an IMO independent type-A tank placed in an insulated hold space.

The Chinese shipyard has never built gas carriers before but they have been commissioned by Landmark Capital to construct the vessel. Landmark Capital was founded by the offshore specialist, David Wu.

FKAB is grateful for the confidence Landmark Holdings, LNG New Technologies and shipyard have shown us, participating in the design of the captioned project.
