British Petroleum (BP) Gas Tanker [Private Visit]

LNG Tanker British Diamond with Gross Tonnage: 102064, Deadweight: 84553 t, Length Overall x Breadth Extreme: 288m × 44m which was build in 2008.

I had the chance to have a private guided visit of the different parts of the boat emphasizing the technical aspects of the it : control rooms for Gas flow and pressure when delivering or collecting at the terminals ; safety measurements and security aspects onboard ; the containment systems which in the case of this boat is the TGZ Mark III tanks which membranes consists of stainless steel with “waffles” in order to absorb the thermal contraction when the tank is cooled down.
