Dalian: Dalian Shipbuilding Industry Co (DSIC) is to develop a design for a gas turbine powered LNG carrier in cooperation with GE Marine and Lloyds’ Register.
The new 170,000 cu m LNG carrier will provide a low life-cycle cost, high environmental performance and flexible design, said Brien Bolsinger, vice president of marine operations for GE Marine. "By employing GE gas turbines, this LNG carrier design will address increasingly stringent worldwide environmental regulations," he said.
Yu Fengping, president of DSIC, said, “China will require more and more LNG carriers over the next 10 years to meet the country’s growing energy needs. DSIC is committed to developing the next generation of LNG carriers equipped with new technology solutions.” [05/12/13]
