This paper deals with the technical details and actual performance gained in the operation of the inert gas barge for LNG carriers. This barge was delivered in August 1973 and currently (1976) has satisfactorily completed 30 inerting operations for the seven LNG tankers on the Brunei to Japan LNG project. The barge is equipped with an inert gas generating plant under the trade name of "Turbinert Inert Gas System", which consists of the following three major parts:
(a) A gas turbine of Viking KG 2-3 type supplied by Kongsberg of Norway
(b) an afterburner/cooling tower by Moss Rosenberg of Norway
(c) refrigerating and dryingequipment supplied by Kobe Steel Co.

This paper outlines the inerting operation for the LNG tankers and describes the background of the inert gas barge, technical details of the Turbinert system and operational performance of the barge. In addition, the author suggests that the use of this technique is making a significant contribution to the operational safety and efficiency of the LNG tankers it serves.
