American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) granted approval in principle to LNT Marine for its new liquefied natural gas fuel tank design. 

LNT Marine, a company created by the merger between LNG New Technologies and MGI Thermo, received the approval in principle for the prismatic semi-pressurized (2 bar g) LNG fuel tank, named LNT Fuel-BOX.

Higher tank pressure allows for simpler boil off handling and increased holding time, and enable flexibility with regards to vapor handling during bunkering operations, LNT Marine said in its brief statement on its social media channels.

The company added the cargo containment system is based on a robust primary barrier.
