NEW ORLEANS – Harvey Gulf International Marine (HGIM) has received both ABS-class functional approval and United States Coast Guard design bases approval on a 4,000 cu m (141,258 cu ft) LNG articulating tug barge construction drawing package.
The design accounts for ship-to-ship transfer and shore-side resupply transfers.
Working with design partner Waller Marine in conjunction with ABS and USCG, the company said it had developed the design package ahead of construction, minimizing the potential for delays and cost impacts to the project during construction.
HGIC said it was committed to the domestic LNG marine market, delivering what it says is the first US vessel to use LNG as a marine fuel, Harvey Energy, as well as the development and operation of another claimed US first, the Port Fourchon, Louisiana LNG marine refueling terminal.
