The carrier has an overall length of 300 m and can hold 200 000 m3 cargo capacity (Mark-III FLEX membrane tank). The WinGD6×72DF dual-fuel engine (with lower emissions of NOx, SOx and PM) is designed to fit most harbours in Emission Control Areas (ECA).
An Wenxin, Chief Operating Officer of WOM, said: “We are very proud to cooperate with DNV GL, GTT, and MARIC in the 200K LNGC concept design, which extends our product pipeline in floating LNG industry and also meets the future market demand.
“With our strengthening collaboration with partners along the industrial chain, and sustained investment in LNG trading and floating LNG infrastructure operation, WOM is dedicated to providing our customers with one-stop-service in LNG industry.”
Falk Rothe, Head of the Technical Centre China, added: “This design of an efficient gas carrier is a new benchmark in this segment.
