Chemical tankers LNG tanks ordered

Sep 27 2019

Chart Industries has been awarded a contract by LGM Engineering to supply four LNG fuel tanks for marine fuel gas systems to power two 22,000 dwt chemical tankers with natural gas.

The ships will be built in Wuhu Shipyard, China for Sweden’s Rederi AB Donsötank.


Each of the 300 cu m capacity cryogenic tanks comprises double stainless steel shells with vacuum & perlite insulation. The tanks will be designed and manufactured at Chart’s Changzhou, China facility and classed by DNV GL in accordance with associated regulations.


“We thank LGM Engineering for this order and are excited to be working with them on this project. With IMO2020 regulations coming into force on 1st January, reducing the maximum sulfur content of marine fuel from the current 3.5% to 0.5%, Chart’s technology is integral to the increased number of LNG powered ships on international waters and the bunkering infrastructure required to fuel them,” said Robert Chen, President Chart D&S Asia.
