South Korea’s Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering has been chosen by Korea Gas Corporation (Kogas) to build four 174,000 m3 LNG carriers, while Samsung Heavy Industries will build two carriers featuring the newly developed KC-1 cargo hold system together with Kogas’ onshore membrane LNG tank.

Two carriers built by DSME will be managed by Korea Line Corporation, while the other two will be managed by Hyundai LNG Shipping. The two carriers built by Samsung Heavy will be managed by SK Shipping.

These six LNG carriers will be used to transport an annual 2.8 million tons of shale gas from the Cheniere Energy’s Sabine Pass port in the U.S.A. to Korea beginning in 2017.

DSME said that it received a high score because of the HiVAR-FGSS and PRS system.

HiVAR-FGSS is a fuel supply system developed by DSME. It supplies high pressure natural gas to the engine from the fuel tank. The Partial Re-liquefaction System (PRS) has reduced the cost of vessel maintenance by utilizing vaporized LNG gas in the cargo hold as a refrigerant, thereby making the need for additional power sources and refrigerant compressors unnecessary, according to DSME.
