DNV GL has awarded an approval in principle (AIP) to South Korea’s Daehan Shipbuilding (DHSC) for a new design of small-size LPG carriers.
Prior to the AIP, DHSC and DNV GL had teamed up in a joint development project (JDP) on small-size LPG carriers using LPG as dual fuel. While DHSC worked to develop new vessel designs, DNV GL reviewed both the basic and detailed designs in accordance with relevant rules and regulations, and provided technical advice and recommendations by its own gas carrier experts to help enhance the design development.
The vessels will have deadweights within the 5,000- to 7,000-tonne range.
