30 Jul 2007
In June TGE has successfully completed the “ISABELLA KOSAN”. The ship is the first of a series of ten 8,000 cbm LPG/ Ethylene-Carrier built at Sekwang Heavy Industries in Ulsan, Korea for the Danish Shipowner Lauritzen-Kosan.
The TGE scope comprises the detail engineering and design of the cargo handling system and the delivery of the gas handling equipment including IMO type C cargo tanks. Furthermore the construction, pre-commissioning, commissioning and performance tests where supervised by TGE. The Isabella Kosan includes a couple of special features, like separate compressor shelter for each cargo tank, containerized deck tanks and containerized PSA plant. Furthermore cargo residues in the deck tank containers can be burned in a dual fuel generator set.
Subsidiary company TGE Marine Engineering has carried out the basic ship design documents up to the classification level, which includes also ship line development, model testing and hydrostatic calculations.
