LR Awards AiP to HMD for LNG Carrier with IMO Type B Tank
LR has granted Approval in Principle to Hyundai Mipo Dockyard for its 30,000 CBM LNG carrier with prismatic IMO type B tank design, a key result following a Joint Development Project between the two parties launched in January 2020. As part of the JDP, HMD produced the design of the 30,000 CBM LNG carrier with an IMO type B tank. LR’s role was to review the suitability and risks of the design which involved a Structural Design Assessment and Fatigue Design Assessment.
This included a crack propagation analysis and a design review in accordance with the latest applicable LR Class Rules and Guidance and IMO regulations, which resulted in the AiP.
