Norway’s LNG New Technologies has successfully completed a mock-up testing of its new LNT A-BOX containment system for LNG carriers in China in cooperation with partners Xiamen Shipbuilding Industry and MGI Thermo. The testing, which was witnessed by class surveyors from ABS, BV and DNV GL, was carried out for procedure qualifications and verification of the containment arrangement, with specific focus on its insulation system and integrated secondary barrier design.
It was agreed between the parties involved and the class representatives that the tests were successful. This has allowed the company to embark on the next phase of development, which will include project development for LNG carriers and other large LNG floating units. JS
