The Korean Register (KR) has granted approval in principle (AIP) to verify the suitability of an LNG dual-fuel propulsion car carrier developed by Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI).

The AIP covers two pure car and truck carrier (PCTC) vessels with a respective capacity of 7000 CEU and 8100 CEU.

Both vessels are equipped with International Maritime Organization (IMO) Type C, independent, self-supporting LNG fuel tanks.

The two vessels will also be fitted with dual-fuel systems that can use LNG and oil alternately, and the ship design uses the optimum deployment of the fuel tanks to facilitate the loading of vehicles for shipping.

A comprehensive risk analysis has been completed to safely block and control automobile exhaust gas and LNG fuel gas.
