ABS grants approval in principle for Algoship's LNG bulker

American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) granted approval in principle for the Seatransporter-DF, a dual-fuel design concept developed by Algoship Designers of Bahamas.

The design has the capability to accommodate multiple engine types as well as Type-C or membrane containment systems for LNG fuel, according to ABS’ statement.

Algoship worked with US-headquartered CleanShips to develop a version of the bulk carrier design that would meet specific operational requirements without compromising cargo carrying capacity.

The 38,000 DWT version is equipped with a 2,400 cubic meter LNG fuel containment system.

ABS added that Algoship is applying the same design philosophy to Panamax, Ultramax and Kamsarmax sized carriers noting that the dual fuel technology is also applicable to other vessel types.

“Technically innovative designs that advance the use of LNG as fuel will play an increasingly important role in the marine sector,” ABS executive vice president for global marine Kirsi Tikka.

As the marine industry continues to adjust to comply with more stringent air emission requirements, the use of LNG as a fuel will be adopted in more subsectors in the marine industry.

Developed to help meet the current and upcoming international air emission standards, the Seatransporter-DF design can be used in Emission Control Areas (ECAs).
