Izar launches LNG barge
The Izar Fene Shipyard has launched the platform that will support a natural gas liquefaction plant in Hammerfest, Norway.  Following the launch, the platform will be moored in the Spanish shipyard and will undergo hydraulic testing before delivery.
The LNG plant in Norway will be an integral part of the development of the offshore natural gas fields of Albatross, Askeladden, and Snøhvit in the Barents Sea.  Gas will be transported through a submarine pipeline to Melkoya Island, where it will be treated and exported as LNG.

The platform is 154 m long, with a 54-m beam, and weighs 10,000 metric tons.  It is built of highly elastic steel and has been designed to operate for 50 years.
In mid August, Izar Puerto Real shipyard launched a 138,000-cu-m LNG carrier, the keel for which was laid in September of last year.

The vessel is 284.4 m long, 42.5 m wide, and 25.4 m deep, with a draft of 11.4 m. It is outfitted with two GPH 500-1224 cranes that can lift 12 metric tons at 24 m, two GPS 320-1218 cranes capable of lifting 12 metric tons at 18 m, and one GPS 40-0210 crane that can lift 2 metric tons at 10 m. The vessel is outfitted with four double-membrane tanks that will be used to contain the LNG.

According to Izar, the company is the only European' shipyard that has LNG units under construction and is among the few in the world capable of designing and building these kinds of vessels.
