After some forty years of steam turbine dominance in LNG shipping, dual-fuel-electric machinery has established itself as a new market standard. Dual-fuel engines for fifty-two dual-fuel-electric LNG carriers have been ordered by seven shipyards for more than twelve ship owners. 2006 will see the first two dual-fuel-electric LNG carriers, Provalys and Gaz de France Energy, take to the sea.

This paper provides the essentials about dual-fuel engine technology and the dual-fuel-electric machinery concept for LNG carriers, compares different LNG carrier propulsion alternatives technically and commercially, and focuses on the latest developments with respect to both dual-fuel engine technology and the dual-fuel-electric machinery concept.
