Gas and Heat performs maxi LNG tank hydrotest
11 Jun 2018 - ConferenzaGNL
On June 6, Gas and Heat spa (Pisa, Italy) has performed the hydrotest of the largest IMO Type C tank ever built in Europe for a LNG bunker vessel. The owner, the yard, the ship designer and the Class representative were in attendance.
This tank, along with its “brother” will form the containment system of 1×7,500 cbm LNG Carrier-bunkering vessel – two vessels will be built, ordered by Stolt- Nielsen Gas to Keppel shipyard of Singapore.
Gas and Heat designs and supplies the LNG containment, fuel and cargo systems.
Three years ago, Stolt- Nielsen Gas, Gas and Heat and the third partner CPL Concordia established a SPV (named HIGAS) with the aim to build a 9,000 cbm LNG receiving terminal in Sardinia (Oristano) for inland distribution and bunkering.
Gas and Heat spa is the designated terminal EPC contractor.
It should be recalled that in 2017 Stolt-Nielsen subscribed a capital increase of 5.6 million dollars, rising its stake from 10% to 66.25% of Higas, with the remaining portion of capital divided into equal shares between Gas and Heat and CPL Concordia.
