Lloyd’s Register (LR) has give Approval in Principle (AiP) for a gas turbine-powered LNG carrier design by GE Marine and Dalian Shipbuilding Industry Co (DSIC) at Marintec China 2015.

The design is built around a GE gas turbine-based COGES (Combined Gas turbine, Electric and Steam) system that will feature one 25-megawatt gas turbine, one steam turbine generator-set and a heat recovery system including gas combustion unit.
