Containerised LNG Rolls out as Alternative to Traditional Bunkering

Hamburg-based ship engineering and consultancy Marine Service GmbH and London-headquartered repair and retrofit coordinator Newport Shipping have developed a containerised liquefied natural gas (LNG) fuel tank solution for newbuildings and existing container vessels as an alternative to traditional LNG bunkering.

The concept consists of container stowage on free deck in a safe area. The gas handling room is arranged adjacent to the container storage and separated from the containers by a cofferdam and fire protection means, allowing the feeding of low-pressure and high-pressure fuel gas systems for all known 4-stroke and 2-stroke dual-fuel engines, the companies explained.
