CS1 is a new onboard LNG containment system designed by GazTransport and Technigaz. It has been developed from two existing techniques, respectively Mark III and NO 96. The system uses on the one hand reinforced polyurethane foam insulation and on the other hand two membranes – the first one 0,7 mm thick made of invar (low thermal contraction coefficient metal and high nickel content), the second made of a composite aluminium-glass fibre called triplex. The system has been rationalised to make assembling easier and is highly prefabricated. The development of CS1 also benefited from the spectacular improvement in calculation means and therefore differs from the development of earlier techniques. Finite element method allowed early optimisation of technical solutions.
