VIDEO Life on Board LNG Tanker

Meet the crew of Provalys, one of the largest LNG tankers in the world when it arrived at the terminal of Montoir-de-Bretagne and during the unloading of liquefied natural gas (LNG).

When taken into service in 2006, the 154,000 m3 LNG carrier “Provalys” was the largest LNG carrier in existence.

The ‘Provalys’ is propelled by dual-fuel engines and electric propulsion. The heart of the system is four dual-fuel engines; three 12-cylinder and one 6-cylinder Wärtsilä 50DF, giving a combined output of 39.9 MW.
