DNV GL Gives Nod for Vard’s New LNG Bunker Vessel Design

Norwegian firm Vard Engineering Brevik AS has received an Approval in Principle (AiP) for its new 6,500 m3 bunker vessel design from the classification society DNV GL.

The design has been evaluated for compliance with the DNV GL Gas Bunker rules, the applicable Gas Carrier rules as well as the IGC Code’s 2016 edition, according to DNV GL.

The cooperation between DNV GL and Vard resulted in a development “enabling flexibility and quality assurance of our design,” Øystein Kristoffersen Sæther, Managing Director for Vard Engineering Brevik, said, adding that Vard believes that the cooperation could results in “first class designs for shipowners and operators.”

The AiP is a continuation of the General Approval of Ship Application (GASA) of Vard and Brevik Technology’s new IMO Type-B liquefied natural gas (LNG) cargo containment system which was granted by DNV GL at the end of 2015.

The bunker vessel will be given the following class notation 1A tanker for liquefied gas (-163˚C, 500 kg/m3, 0.7 bar) Gas Bunker, DNV GL said.
