Deltamarin, GTT awarded AIP for dual-fuel Newcastlemax bulker design

The American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) has awarded Deltamarin and GTT approval in principle (AIP) for the design of a dual-fuel Newcastlemax bulk carrier.

Deltamarin, GTT, and ABS have been cooperating on the development of the LNG-fuelled vessel by introducing GTT membrane-type LNG tanks with LNG fuel stored at atmospheric pressure and designed to ABS Class.

The membrane tank will be situated aft of the vessel to maximise cargo capacity, with the additional tank having zero impact on available cargo space or the vessel’s hull dimensions.
