German shipyard Fassmer is building the country’s first liquefied natural gas (LNG) powered research vessel for the federal government, it says.
A keel laying ceremony for the Atair took place in December 2017 and the 130 cubic metre LNG bunker fuel tank is scheduled for installation in June 2018.
Initial production of the vessel will take place at a German naval yard in Kiel, due to current high utilisation rate of Fassmer’s current yards, and the vessel will be built using a “block construction” technique.
The vessel is expected to cost Germany €113.8 million ($136.08 million); it will go into service with the Hamburg based Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (BSH) in 2020.
