WE Delivered LNG Fuel Tanks to MSB for 7,000 CEU PCTC FGSS
Jiangsu Watts Energy & Engineering Co., Ltd (WE) delivered 2*1,750cmb LNG fuel tanks to its customer Mitsubishi Shipbuilding Co., Ltd (MSB) on November 18, 2022. It is the first delivery among WE’s 6 serial projects with MSB, supplying one of the key components, LNG fuel tanks, for MSB’s 7,000 CEU PCTC FGSS projects, making WE’s successful debut in Japan.
This project contributes as one of the key components of the carrier’s FGSS, consisting of two 1,750 cbm fuel tanks and their upper TCS modules which gained Class approval by NK. Different from previous deliveries, whose fuel tanks were placed on the upper deck, these two tanks will be accommodated on the lower deck to ensure more space for cars/trucks on the deck. Adopting a compact design their upper TCS modules are covered by steel shells, which make them better protected as well as more stable and efficient in operation. With a mature design, the thickness of the shell plates was 9.5mm at its thinnest, making its structural weight the lightest and more economical among the known tanks at the same volume.
