LR Enviro Standard Employed On LNG Newbuilds

Wednesday, May 08, 2002
Lloyd's Register made three significant strides with one announcement when last month it divulged that Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) is applying the Lloyd's Register (LR) Environmental Protection notation to four LNG ships under construction at its Nagasaki yard. This news is significant for LR as it confirms the strength of its push on the environment and the LNG market, and is the first time this environmental standard has been applied to either LNG or Japanese built ships. Compliance with Lloyd's Register's Environmental Protection standard is voluntary. The notation promotes a standard of environmental performance beyond that covered by ISM and MARPOL, both in terms of design and the on-going operation of the ship. The first ship, Abadi, a joint venture between the Brunei Government, Mitsubishi Corporation and Shell, is due to be completed in June 2002. The remaining three, Galea, Gallina and Gemmata, are scheduled for delivery from September 2002 through to May 2004 and will all be delivered to Shell.
