LNG SRV Carriers are LNG carriers equipped with an SRV
system. In 2009, Samsung Heavy Industries built
the worldâ€™s first LNG-SRV carrier, which is equipped with
various green technologies.
The LNG-SRV carriers built by Samsung Heavy Industries
enable the vaporization of LNG offshore and the direct
supply of revaporized natural gas to in-land locations
through pipelines, unlike previous LNG carriers, which
transported LNG from the location of production
to the location of consumption.
After winning the Korea Technology Award in 2009,
the ship was also designated as the Worldâ€™s Best
Green Ship at the Green Ship Awards in April 2010.
