But the problem with the old diesel is its excessive sulphur content, so LNG becomes more interesting. And there are other things involved besides maintenance - you should see the elaborate way they made the access to the aft free fall lifeboat (not installed yet), to keep it away from hazardous area...

Hell of a lot of extra cost and maintainance with LNG installation. You cannot be the old Diesel !!!

Tomas, almost anything can be squeezed into "Ships under construction" category, but this one maybe is really pushing it... :)

Matty Boy a wide angle shot can make anything look obscene, remember front shots of pronounced bulbs on the slipway before launch?

Quite frankly, this has to be one of the most obscene looking vessel I've ever seen !!! ;-))))

Thank you all for your comments. These are Type C LNG tanks, insulated against heat to prevent excessive boil-off, but I don't know the specifics. Hyundai Samho has experience with those from Sovcomflot Aframax tankers, and from Zvezda Aframaxes as well. They will have some effect on stability, but it's all taken into account...

Cheers

Therse must be a lot of insulation if they are left out in the open like this.
Cheers,

being one of them.

So those are the fuel tanks? How do they affect stability? Will these kind of ships need special facilities for refueling or are they LNG barges?
Many thanks...

Thank you, Holger my dear friend. This is the shape of things to come, I guess...

Greetings from South Korea!
