Ongoing projects

We are happy to see the first LNG carrier newbuilding based on the LNT A-BOX® progressing. Construction of the vessel started in September 2016 and delivery is planned for first half of 2018.

IMG 1166 1500pxThe first A-BOX® vessel is under construction at China Merchants Heavy Industries Co., Ltd. (CMHI).The first LNT A-BOX® vessel will be a 45,000 cbm LNG carrier built by the shipyard China Merchants Heavy Industries Co., Ltd. (CMHI) for Saga LNG Shipping Pte.,Ltd. LNG New Technologies has entered into a license agreement with the yard, and will work closely together with the yard for the design, engineering and construction of the cargo containment system.

The concept design for the vessel has been developed by LNG New Technologies, and is an efficient medium scale LNG carrier for worldwide trade, and ideal for re-loading of cargoes for local and regional distribution of LNG. FKAB of Sweden has been commissioned to carry out the basic design of the ship, and American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) will class the newbuilding.

The cargo handling, machinery & propulsion and an extensive equipment package will be supplied by Wärtsilä. The integrated automation system (IAS) will be supplied by Kongsberg Maritime.
