Lloyd's Register presented Approval in Principle (AiP) to Shanghai Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding Co., Ltd (SWS) for its liquefied natural gas (LNG) dual-fueled Newcastlemax 210,000 DWT bulk carrier design during a ceremony this week at the Posidonia 2018 trade show in Greece.

SWS and LR have agreed to jointly develop the bulk carrier design, which is based on an existing conventional bulk carrier design and updated to incorporate LNG propulsion.

LR provided assistance and support, in terms of the LNG fuel system application and verifying the design against the IGF code, LR's Gas Fueled Rules as well as other relevant applicable standards.

Dr. Chen Gang, Commercial Director of SWS, commented: "SWS has an extensive reference list for designing and building large Capesize bulk carriers. The experience and know-how that has been built to-date has been utilised to develop this latest world class design - LNG-powered Newcastlemax bulk carrier. This design enables the lowest possible fuel consumption and allows owners to select a design that will meet the future SOx emission challenge."
