We had started the R&D on IMO type “B” independent tank since early of 2015. One project team developed special “LGM-B” type independent tank after experiencing technical reserving, system design & optimization. It is fully applicable on fuel storage tank of commercial ships using LNG as fuel and cargo tank of LNG/LPG/LEG carriers. We have been approved in principle for “LGM-B” type independent type tank by DNV-GL in 2016.
● Independent tank with fully enclosed partial second barrier.
● Potential leaked liquid will be entirely contained inside of secondary barrier.
● Improving dramatically security and economy.
● Unnecessary for replacing the surround ship hull structures by cryogenic resisting material.
● Applicable for fuel gas storage tank of LNG fuel power vessels and the cargo tank of LNG/LPG/LEG carriers
