INOXCVA Delivers Large LNG Marine Fuel Tanks for Crowley Maritime Project
INOXCVA recently delivered the first set of three 27,000 cu. ft. LNG marine fuel tanks to TGE Marine Gas Engineering (Bonn, Germany) for Crowley Maritime Corporation’s 2,400 TEU ConRo ships project. The tanks are destined to VT Halter Marine Shipyard in Mississippi.
These ultra large fuel tanks rolled out from INOXCVA’s Kandla facility in India. INOXCVA has invested in state of the art facilities to manufacture these type off fuel gas tanks and similar large tanks to meet the growing requirement for shorter overall project schedules.
When installed on the ConRo Ship, the combined LNG storage would be among the largest for LNG systems and it will support operation of ME-GI main engine and auxiliary generators. The tanks are double walled vacuum insulated Type-C tanks with very high hold time, in excess of 58 days as compared to conventionally insulated LNG tanks which would normally hold for 8 to 10 days.
The second set of three similar tanks will be delivered later this year.
