Since commercial marine transportation of LNG began in 1964 with the "Methane Princess", the development of LNG carriers has shown continuous progress from the first generation with the feature of high propulsion power/high BOR(Boil-Off Rate) to the second generation with the feature of low propulsion power/low BOR and advanced automation. However, to cope with various changes in LNG transportation circumstances, such as competition with other kinds of energy and the increasing distance from consumption areas to LNG sources, MHI has made various attempts at developing innovative LNG carriers for the 21st century that will be beneficial to LNG projects and operators while maintaining the design features which have been proven.
The possible requirements for LNG carriers of the third generation are considered in the paper.
