Chinese shipyard Jiangnan Shipyard (Group), a subsidiary of China State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSSC), has placed a $42 million order for four liquated natural gas (LNG) membrane fuel tanks from Galician outfitting and auxiliary services provider Gabadi.
The agreement will be carried out by Gabadi Marine Engineering (Shanghai) Co. which expects to complete the project by 18 months.
“Within the project of China, the construction of a LNG as a fuel membrane tank for the biggest container carrier in the world, of 22,000 TEU, 400 m in length and 60 m in width, must be highlighted for,” says Gabadi.
“The most important piece of news is that it is not for LNG transport, but for the LNG to be used as a fuel for the vessel.”
The company will mobilise around 70 workers from Galicia to China to take part on the project.
EDITOR: The announcement above did not imply which vessels the LNG bunker fuel tanks are for, but it is worth noting that French shipping firm CMA CGM in 2017 placed an order for nine 22,000 TEU capacity LNG-fuelled boxships for delivery from 2020 onwards.
