Bureau Veritas has delivered an Approval in Principle to LNG MARINE SDN BHD for its first LNG Bunkering Vessel concept, which is also the first of its kind ever developed by a Malaysian company. The development of LNG-fuelled ships is one of the key steps taken by the shipping industry to reduce its emissions and make the transition to a lower-carbon future. Meanwhile, the increased size of this new breed of LNG-fuelled ships is driving bunkering needs well beyond the capacity of LNG trucks previously used for smaller bunkering operations at terminals. This has led to the development of LNG Bunkering Vessels (LNG BVs).The vessel design will reflect industry best practice, as well as the latest features for LNG bunkering operations to cater for all types and sizes of LNG-fuelled ships.BV reviewed the design and confirmed that it meets the technical and regulatory requirements and safety standards. The vessel will integrate the most recent notations in terms of cyber management (CYBER MANAGED notation) and environment protection (CLEANSHIP, GREEN PASSPORT notations). The vessel will also have provision to incorporate a battery-hybrid for reducing its GHG emissions in future operations.
