Liquefied natural gas technology provider LNT Marine has secured the approval for its LNG carrier fitted with the LNT A-Box containment system.
A company official noted in a brief social media statement that the 40,000-cbm liquefied natural gas carrier fitted with LNT A-Box system for China Yangtze River operation received AiP from China Classification Society (CCS).
