MAN Energy Solutions’ marine LNG fuel-gas-system manufacturer has announced that it will supply an LNG fuel-gas supply system to Norwegian ship owner, Egil Ulvan Rederi, for a ‘multipurpose palletised cargo and refrigerated vessel’ newbuild, also known as a LoLo. The vessel is designed by Forde, Norway designer, Multi Maritime, that already counts a number of LNG-powered vessels in its portfolio. The MM85CC design will be built at Tersan Shipyard in Turkey. Tersan has, over the years, also built quite a number of LNG-powered vessels and this will be the sixth such vessel since 2016 that it will outfit with a marine fuel-gas system delivered by MAN Cryo. The newbuild is scheduled for delivery in late 2020.

MAN Cryo’s scope of supply for the vessel covers:
• a vertical, vacuum-insulated 364 m3 LNG tank
• a complex tank-connection space with two redundant LNG supply trains, based on both a pump and a pressure-build-up unit
• an LNG cold-recovery evaporator
• an integrated bunker station (BS100-GR).

Upon construction, the 3,500 dwt-vessel will have a length of 86 meter and breadth of 19.5 m and will service the round trip between Tromsø in northern Norway to Ostfold in the southeast. The vessel is a multipurpose design with reefer capacity, a refrigerated hold and elevators for palletised goods, as well as the capability to discharge fish food at fish farms along its route.

Vertical IMO Type C LNG tank
Worldwide, just a few vertical LNG tanks are in operation that are classed for marine applications. MAN Cryo has produced vertical LNG tanks for marine fuel-gas systems since 2011 and can cite reference projects ranging from 89 to 400 m3 gross volume.

Vertical tanks offer an alternative to horizontal tanks and bring many advantages, including:
• less impact on stability due to smaller liquid surface
• less likely to create sloshing
• increased hydrostatic pressure, facilitating fuel flow.
