JoongAng Daily - - Business & Finance -

Dae­woo Ship­build­ing and Marine En­gi­neer­ing said yes­ter­day it has de­vel­oped the world’s first liq­ue­fied pe­tro­leum gas (LPG) fu­eled car­rier. The company said it has been work­ing on the ship with four part­ners, in­clud­ing its af­fil­i­ate Dae­woo Ship­build­ing En­gi­neer­ing Company (DSEC), since March and has ob­tained a ba­sic ap­proval for it from its Nor­we­gian or­der­ing company, Det Norske Ver­i­tas (DNV).

The ap­proval ver­i­fies that the de­sign of the ves­sel’s foun­da­tion is valid, a process the company must go through in or­der to sell the ship. The ship is 182 me­ters (597.1 feet) long and 29.6 me­ters wide with a tank that can carry 39,000 cu­bic me­ters (8.6 mil­lion gal- lons) of gas. The company said it uses a mix­ture of propane and bu­tane.
