Gas Carriers

Bureau Veritas has a long experience in ship classification and rules development. We are well positioned in LNG, LPG, and LEG carriers and active with major shipbuilders, designers and engineering firms involved with gas carriers.
 

The trade of gas can change rapidly as new sources of gas develop and worries over fuel security and nuclear power emerge. The LNG trade is expected to grow at a faster pace than natural gas consumption.
 

But, as demand grows for gas carriers, these types of vessels are becoming increasingly high-tech as they carry a very specific cargo (LNG has to be kept at a precise cool temperature during its transportation).

 

Bureau Veritas helps you rise to the challenge while ensuring safety at sea.


 

Bureau Veritas offers a wide range of solutions:


 

Why choose Bureau Veritas?

 

  • Unrivalled expertise with LNG shipment

Bureau Veritas works closely with yards and engine manufacturers on projects for gas-fuelled LNG carriers burning boil-off gas and with different cargo containment systems and propulsion designs.
 

Bureau Veritas' ability to help move new LNG projects quickly and safely from concept to construction and delivery is vital to supporting investments in such a fast-moving market.

 

  • Cutting edge research into structural and propulsion issues

We have been at the forefront of LNG propulsion developments. The industry is moving away from traditional steam turbines, seeking greater efficiency in the form of solutions such as dual fuel diesel electric propulsion or two-stroke dual fuel engines.

 

We are working closely with engine manufacturers and shipyards in the development of these alternative solutions, which also include slow speed dual fuel engines with reliquefaction capabilities.
