Classification society DNV GL awarded Vard Engineering Brevik with an Approval in Principle (AIP) for the new 6,500-cbm LNG bunker vessel design. 

The design has been evaluated for compliance with the DNV GL Gas Bunker rules, the applicable Gas Carrier rules as well as the IGC Code’s 2016 edition, DNV GL said in a statement on Monday.

The AIP is a continuation of the GASA (General Approval of Ship Application) of Vard and Brevik Technology’s IMO Type-B LNG cargo containment system which was granted by DNV GL at the end of 2015.

“With the continuing rise in interest in LNG as a ship fuel, both from an environmental and economic perspective, it is essential that we continue to develop the infrastructure which will allow this technology to thrive,” says Johan Petter Tutturen, business director for Gas Carriers at DNV GL.
