Samsung to Design LNG Tankers for Arctic LNG 2

  • Zvezda Shipbuilding Complex and Samsung Heavy Industries Co. Ltd. signed a contract for the design of LNG tankers for Arctic LNG 2 project during the 5th Eastern Economic Forum in Vladivostok, Rosneft reports.

    According to the document, Samsung Heavy Industries will become technology partner of the project and hand over the technical specifications and the design documentation of the project to Zvezda Shipbuilding Complex. The Korean company will also provide assistance in developing working design documentation to Lazurit central design bureau.

    The Arctic LNG carriers to be built by Zvezda Shipbuilding Complex will meet all the requirements of the Russian Federation regulations which allow determining ships as Russian.

    In 2018, Novatek confirmed a reservation of Zvezda production capacities for the whole series of gas carriers for the Arctic LNG 2 project. In April 2019, Zvezda and Sovcomflot signed a contract for the construction of a pilot gas carrier for Arctic LNG 2.

    For the first time in history, the construction of vessel of this type will be carried out by a Russian shipyard.

    The vessel design allows it to individually pull through the ice of up to 2.1 metres thick. The capacity of the gas carrier’s power station is 45 MW which is comparable to the capacity of a nuclear icebreaker.

    These Arctic LNG carriers feature increased environmental safety; in particular, they use liquefied natural gas (LNG) as their primary fuel.
