DSME LNG Tank Technology Approved by Lloyd’s Register

| United Kingdom and South Korea

Lloyd’s Register has approved new prismatic IMO Type B independent cargo tanks, so called ACTIB (Aluminium Cargo Tank Independent Type B), for transportation of liquefied natural gas (LNG). The new design, developed by Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) and constructed of insulated aluminium 5083, is also suitable for LNG-as-fuel tanks where partial fill is a critical operational issue. DSME also plans to apply the ACTIB system to the fuel tank design of LNG-fuelled ships such as DSME’s next-generation ‘green ship’ powered by LNG.
