Classification society DNV and the Liberian International Ship and Corporate Registry (LISCR) have awarded an approval in principle (AIP) to Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) and Korea Shipbuilding and Offshore Engineering (KSOE) for a new 40,000-cubic-metre liquified CO2 (LCO2) carrier design.
Each ship in the series will have a length of 239 metres, a beam of 30 metres, a depth of 21 metres, and seven IMO type C cargo tanks.
DNV said the vessels will be designed to carry LCO2 cargo only, though multi-cargoes such as LPG or ammonia can also be considered.
