Nassco, Braemar LNG sign technology licensing agreement

General Dynamics NASSCO and Braemar LNG, a unit of Braemar Shipping Services, have signed a technology licensing agreement for Braemar to use NASSCO’s intellectual property in their design and construction of Flat-Panel, Semi-Membrane, Prismatic-Shaped LNG containment systems.

FSP is a new multipurpose Type B flat-panel, semi-membrane, prismatic-shaped LNG tank-containment system which uses flat plate technology and a universal joint configuration. The system is constructed, outfitted, insulated and fully tested off hull and lifted complete into a vessel while the vessel is still under construction. It is designed to avoid any issues associated with partially filled membrane-type tanks. This off-hull fabrication leads to a significant reduction in vessel construction time and improves the accuracy, reliability and tank-to-tank construction learning.

FSP has previously received Approval in Principle from both Lloyds Register and the American Bureau of Shipping.
