American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) has granted the approval in principle (AIP) for the LNG Jumbo, a new carrier design from the Chinese Jiangnan Shipyard Group.

The design features the GTT Mark III Flex cargo containment system developed in cooperation with ship designer MARIC.

Hu Keyi, technical director of Jiangnan Shipyard Group said, “by working with ABS to secure this AiP, we have laid the groundwork for the introduction of this type of vessel to the market.”

The LNG Jumbo design features a WINGD X-DF low-pressure, low-speed two-stroke dual-fuel main engine propulsion system, combined with additional energy saving devices.

When the engine is in gas mode the system meets IMO NOx Tier III requirements without the need for exhaust gas treatment systems.

The design also includes a United States Coast Guard (USCG) certified ballast water treatment system.
