Singapore-based Saga LNG Shipping has received an approval in principle from China Classification Society (CCS) for two liquefied natural gas carrier designs.

The first design called Wuhumax is a 40,000-cbm mid-sized LNG carrier while the second concept named Wuhanmax is a 28,500-cbm LNG vessel.

The Wuhumax LNG carrier will have a draught of 8 meters while the Wuhanmax will have a draught of 5.9 meters, enabling them to serve smaller coastal LNG terminals along the Yangtze River, according to Saga LNG.

Both of the vessels are designed by LNT Marine and will feature a patented LNG tank system named LNT A-Box, also developed by LNT Marine.

To remind, Saga LNG’s and LNT Marine’s chief David Wu told LNG World News in November last year that Saga LNG plans to order an 80,000-cbm carrier in the first quarter of this year to serve a planned government-backed LNG project on the Yangtze River in China.

Saga LNG sees a growing interest in China for small to mid-sized LNG carriers.
