ICE Develops Innovative “Milk Run” LNG Distribution Tanker
Working closely with a major operator of gas ships, ICE has developed a “milk run” LNG distribution tanker with a cargo contained in two type C semi-pressurised and fully refrigerated bi-lobe cargo tanks.
The vessel’s dual-fuel propulsion system is designed to normally operate on boil-off gas (BOG), whilst having the ability to alternatively run the vessel to comply with sulphur emission control area (SECA) restrictions and to manage the amount of BOG during fully laden trips.
The unusually low draft and high manoeuvrability would allow the vessel to supply LNG to terminals and end users in location that has so far not been serviced by ocean-going LNG carriers.
