LNG FUEL READY 300K VLCC is Getting ready
March 03, 2015



On March 3, STX O&S signed a cooperation agreement with ABS on jointly developing "LNG FUEL READY 300K VLCC" and it was held in Changwon R&D center, which was attended by Joo Myung-Jae, the CEO of ABS Korea branch, and Choi Eui-Keol, Vice President, Basic Design Division.


An option to design LNG Fuel Ready Vessels, which could be converted to use LNG as fuel, has recently been required to be included in the newly-made contracts, in order to reduce the operating cost and to meet environmental regulations.


Therefore, STX O&S will preliminarily consider requirements to be applied in the vessel so that STX O&S could have the capacity to deliver LNG Fuel vessel in the future. This step will then officially undergo ABS approval process and it would allow STX O&S to build customer trust.
