American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) granted approval in principle to two liquefied natural gas (LNG)-powered designs from China’s Dalian Shipbuilding Industry Group.

DSIC’s designs include a 208,000 dwt bulk carrier and a concept 260,000 dwt Very Large Ore Carrier (VLOC), according to a statement by ABS.

Both designs incorporate a Type C LNG fuel tank in the open area of the aft deck, which DSIC says minimizes the influence on the arrangement of the deck house and increases cargo capacity.

DSIC believes the optimized aft deck integrated arrangement achieved the modular design concept for the LNG gas supply system, safety system and filling system and makes for convenient installation and maintenance.

DSIC said: “LNG is quickly becoming the alternative fuel of choice. By working with ABS, we are able to demonstrate the viability of our designs as a solution for shipowners and operators examining the feasibility of LNG as fuel for their vessels.”
