American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) and Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) will collaborate on a next-generation LNG carrier in a joint development project.

ABS said on Tuesday that, under the agreement, SHI would deliver the concept and basic design for a next-generation LNG carrier which would incorporate an advanced air lubrication system for improved efficiency.

Also, the concept will incorporate smart-ship technologies, and ABS will carry out a design review of the structure and arrangements.

Jong H. Youn, VP of SHI, said: In this [agreement] we will focus on the examination and realization of future technologies with SHI’s most advanced LNG carrier design to meet current and future market demand.

It is worth reminding that ABS has extensive experience with the full scope of gas-related assets and has been the classification society of choice for some of the most advanced gas carriers in service.

ABS provides regulatory and statutory guidance on projects related to LNG floating structures and systems, gas fuel systems and equipment, gas carriers, and barges.
