ClassNK grants AiP for LNG-fueled 207,000 dwt bulk carrier design

01 Feb 2019

Classification society ClassNK on Thrusday (31 January) issued an Approval in Principle (AIP) for the concept design of a liquefied natural gas (LNG) fueled 207,000 dwt bulk carrier design from Kawasaki Heavy Industries.

The AIP is based on its Rule Part GF which adopts IGF Code (regulation for ships using low-flashpoint fuels).

“The maritime industry has been setting its sights on LNG as an energy source for ships as it is an environmentally-friendly alternative to fossil fuels,” said ClassNK Corporate Officer and Director of Technical Solution Department Hayato Suga.

“Kawasaki Heavy Industries is taking full advantage of this opportunity as well with their new bulk carrier design.

“We have carefully confirmed the safety of the design and are proud to contribute to this project.”
