Singapore-based Saga LNG informed that its newly developed bunker vessel received approvals in principle (AIP) from the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) and China Classification Society (CCS).
The liquefied methane bunker vessel, LMB6000 is a bunker ship with only one built-in C-tank of 6000cbm. It will be driven by a containerized pure gas generator with a small battery bank.
On the deck, the vessel features Saga LNG Group’s patent CGR unit (Cryogenic Gas Recovery) which can liquify any type of BOG.
The LMB6000 can be used as bunker ship and also used to take back remaining LNG from the LNG driven ships before going to dry-dock in the yard.
It can also be used for new LNGC’s gas trail and the 1st time commissioning of LNG terminal.
