LNG containment: pressurised and non-pressurised storage systems
The properties of LNG require methods of fuel storage new to traditional shipping. The containment system chosen can greatly impact design, and the operation of the LNG fuelled ships. This session explores the ways in which LNG tanks vary and what to look for to ensure optimum compatibility for each vessel’s operations.
- Overview of shape, fabrication and pressure of tanks
- Understanding the operational implications of pressurised and nonpressurised containment systems: how does this compare to operations using traditional marine fuels?
- Understanding key differences between the available onboard storage tanks
