SENER to unveil new design for LNG bunkering vessel

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

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.

The company develops solutions to suit types of vessel or structure such as ferries, tugboats and fishing boats, as well as LNG and support vessels.
