Bureau Veritas has granted classification and statutory certificates to SK Audace, an LNG carrier with cargo capacity of 180,000 m3.  
The innovative carrier is the first ship to be equipped with Win G&D X-DF engines, and features the largest four membrane cargo tanks ever built. A sister ship, SK Resolute, is currently being built at SHI. The two new-generation ships for SK Shipping incorporate improvements identified as part of a detailed energy efficiency optimization JIP.
