Classification society DNV GL has awarded Korean shipbuilder Daehan Shipbuilding an Approval in Principle for the design of an LNG-fuelled 115,000 dwt Aframax tanker.

As the maritime industry continues to build on its efforts to reduce emissions to air, LNG as a ship fuel is attracting a great deal of attention across many ship sizes and types.

The new joint development project (JDP) undertaken by DHSC and DNV GL focussed on producing a design that is tailored to these emerging regulatory and market trends.

“We believe the completion of this joint development project will allow us to take a competitive position in a challenging market. Eco-friendly designs enabled DHCS to win newbuilding orders. The result of the JDP will be another enabler for us to strengthen our marketing strategy,” said Yong-Duk Park, CEO & President of DHSC.

DNV GL reviewed and verified drawing packages related to gas-fuelled systems submitted by DHSC.
