From Hudong Zhonghua Shipbuilding

On June 23, the 7th China International LNG & GAS International Exhibition and Summit kicked off at the National Exhibition and Convention Center (NECC). As the only domestic company that holds a record of large-scale LNG carrier construction, Hudong Zhonghua, a subsidiary of China State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSSC), demonstrates its latest products. BOD of Hudong Zhonghua attended the meeting. Leaders and guests from the China Classification Society (CCS), the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS), the DNV Classification Society, and the GTT jointly appeared at the Hudong Zhonghua booth.

At the exhibition, Hudong-Zhonghua Shenzhen Gas obtained double AIP certificates for dual-class 79,960 m3 LNG ship, 12,000 m3 to 18,600 m3 series of ballast-free LNG bunkering ships, and signed 174,000 m3 of NO.96 Super+ LNG development agreement.

79,960m3 LNG carriers design

The 79,960 m3 LNG ship is the largest LNG carrier independently designed by Hudong Zhonghua. It has the best navigation capability among the same class of LNG ships in the world. 

Playing a key role in the Hudong-Zhonghua LNG industry chain, the Shenzhen Gas LNG Carrier Project will help Shenzhen Gas Corporation to achieve steady LNG carrier shipbuildings. In addition to providing solutions for the transportation of liquid cargo among LNG receiving stations along the coast and inland rivers.

The series of 12,000 m3 to 18,600 m3 of ballast-free LNG bunkering vessels

The series of 12,000 m3 to 18,600 m3 of ballast-free LNG bunkering vessels is an important product of the LNG industry chain. It is one of the important innovations for the maritime industry to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. By eliminating frequent ballasting and de-ballasting operations, the operation of LNG bunkering ships is improved. Convenient and easier to maintain, it will lead the development direction and can be applied to a wide range of areas along the river, coastal, and deep seas.
