The Joint Industry Project (JIP) LSR is participating in the establishment of an LNG infrastructure via Pilot LNG by designing and building a small bulk/dry cargo vessel fuelled with LNG without losing cargo carrying capacity.
JIP LSR is presented today at the MoS Conference together with the five other JIPs within the framework of Pilot LNG.
Results so far
The ship is decided to be a self-unloader for cement transports. Most of the work related to ship design are finished and the project is now entering the building phase. Examples of challenges which the project has solved are LNG-arrangement (tank in the bow), regulatory gaps and LNG component selection.
