When completed, Arctic Princess was the largest
LNG carrier ever built:
288 meters long with a breadth of 49 m and a
capacity of 147,000 cubic meters of LNG. She is also the first LNG
carrier that will be employed for carrying liquefied
natural gas (LNG) from the world's northernmost LNG
The LNG is carried at a temperature of minus 163 degrees centigrade in
four Moss containment system spherical tanks, each
with a diameter of 42 meters. A full cargo load of
LNG is sufficient to cover the yearly energy
consumption of all households in a city with a
population of 45,000 people.
The building contract for
Arctic Princess was entered into with Mitsubishi
Heavy Industries Ltd (MHI) in Japan in December 2001
and the vessel was delivered on schedule in 2006. Arctic Princess
is chartered to the Snohvit Sellers
for a period of 20 years.
