Primorsk Shipyard Zvezda will build a pilot gas carrier for Sovcomflot by 2023
The shipbuilding complex Zvezda from the Primorsky Territory will build a pilot gas carrier vessel for the Arctic LNG-2023 project by 2 year for Sovkomflot. The parties have already concluded a construction contract.
According to the press service of "Stars", the design of the vessel allows him to independently overcome the ice thickness up to 2,1 meter. The power capacity of the gas carrier is 45 MW - this is comparable to the power of an atomic icebreaker. At the same time, tankers are distinguished by increased environmental safety, since they use liquefied natural gas as the main fuel.
Such a vessel will be built for the first time in Russia. The gas carrier will comply with the technical requirements for the Christophe de Margerie type vessels ordered for the PJSC NOVATEK project in 2013 in South Korea. They are used year-round transportation of LNG in difficult ice conditions.
Earlier, Sovkomflot placed an order for construction at the seaside shipyard three product tankers new generation. They are intended for transportation of petroleum products and gas condensate, in the future they are to be chartered by PJSC "Novatek" on the basis of long-term time-charter contracts.
