Ultra Light barge tanker Swiss LNG I completed at De Gerlien van Tiem
The Swiss LNG I is an Ultra Light LNG tanker of 135 x 18 meters intended for Swiss Barging, a subsidiary of Rederij Somtrans nv from Wijnegem. The 70 cubic meter LNG tank is located at the stern. 2 Wärtsilä engines type 6L20 of 1110 kW each, provide the dual-fuel propulsion. De Gerlien van Tiem supplied 2 bow thrusters and 2 square spud poles of its own making.
A FLEX tunnel system has been integrated into the shallow water hull so that the tanker can also transport its cargo at low water.
The inauguration of the Swiss LNG I was celebrated on 7 August with a great party at our yard in Druten.
