Deltamarin, Brevik develop new multigas carrier design

Deltamarin and Brevik Technology, a VARD affiliate, have joined forces in developing a multigas carrier design.

The concept combines the design of Deltamarin’s B.Delta and the new cylindrical gas tanks by Brevik Technology, the companies said on Monday.

The design can be utilised for small-scale LNG, LPG, LEG and ethane carriers with a capacity of 31,000 cbm.

The cylindrical tank design allows the tanks to expand in all directions without putting stress on the vessel hull. The independent containment system, which can be built into a vessel as is, results in better possibilities to utilise the existing well-proven ship design, the statement said.

The design based on the B.Delta is actually a bulk carrier design equipped with cylindrical tanks for the gas cargo.

The companies plan to provide the similar design for medium- and larger-scale newbuilds in the future as well as for retrofit vessels such as the conversion of a bulk carrier to gas carrier.
