Under the contract, signed on September 17 at Gastech 2019, Samsung Heavy would deliver the concept and basic design for the carrier which will incorporate an advanced air lubrication system for improved efficiency.

In addition, the concept will incorporate smart-ship technologies. ABS will carry out design review of the structure and arrangements.
