Pacific Breeze is the largest MOSS type LNG carrier ever constructed, with a capacity of 182,000 m3 in four stretch type tanks. The carrier was recently delivered by Kawasaki Heavy Industry to K-Line. It is also the first ever carrier of this type contracted to be equipped with tri-fuel diesel electric propulsion. Extensive fatigue analyses for 40 years’ design life have been carried out. The vessel also offers the highest level of comfort in terms of noise and vibration levels.
