The first gasoil free tanker is become reality this year (2013). LNG Greenstream (name of the tanker) is sailing completely on LNG, Liquid Natural Gas. Two years ago Peters Shipyards started with the development of the LNG Greenstream. The tanker is built entirely in the Netherlands.
LNG Greenstream is used by Interstream Barging. This company is specialized in the transport of liquid products for the chemical and petrochemical industries. Also the LNG Greenstream is used for this purpose.
What are the benefits of Liquid Natural Gas? It is considerably cleaner and friendlier for the environment. The emission of CO2 and NOx is reduced by sailing on LNG. Other substances are not longer produced by the use of LNG. This tanker is an innovation and a huge step forward when it comes to durability, safety and efficiency.
Through this innovation the LNG Greenstream is awarded in the Netherlands as Vessel of the Year 2013! The window wipers of Observator Vision are installed on the Vessel of the Year “LNG Greenstream”. This is a small part of the tanker, but certainly not unimportant for good and clear view.
