Spain-based engineering group SENER is all set to unveil its new design for a liquefied natural gas (LNG) bunkering vessel.

The company proposes to use this new technology in its own activities, and has embarked upon a research project to design an LNG-powered vessel, as well as an accompanying unit to supply these vessels with fuel.

SENER stated that using LNG as a fuel source will reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, in addition to almost completely eliminating sulphur dioxide (SO2), nitrous oxide (N2), and other polluting particles.

"It is hoped LNG will become a popular solution for shipping organisations looking to be more conscious of their carbon footprint."

Because of this, it is hoped LNG will become a popular solution for shipping organisations looking to be more conscious of their carbon footprint.

The company’s latest design will be available in two ship versions; with the first being 114.8m in length and 20.4m breadth, comprising a bunkering capacity of 8,000m³ and a maximum continuous rating (MCR) of 6,000kW, carrying two bunkering tanks.

Meanwhile, SENER’s second supply vessel is 85.35m in length and 82.1m width, with a total capacity of 4,000m³. This design will have an MCR of 4,000kW, and will also carry two bunkering tanks.
