Hi Ian ,according to Google ,her rudder and steering equipment were taken off,no info regarding her engine so if her engine is still in the ship ,it must be inoperative. The ship cannot be sailed without a rudder and the relative steering machinery. regards.

Thanks for the reply Emmanuel, sorry but I did not kniow about her arrival at Malta, but I hope that you have some luck in getting the information your looking for.

Ian, I have seen your link of the vessel departing Dubai,she is shown being towed astern by a number of local tugs.The link says she sailed away, but that doesn't neccesarily mean that she sailed under her own power.She arrived her in Malta towed by two large tugs,the FAIRMOUNT ALPINE and the FAIRMOUNT SUMMIT whilst another Fairmount tug the FAIRMOUNT SHERPA has also arrived in Malta.Also the contraption on her bow I don't think helps her much in steering.

Emmanuel, Her engine remains intact and sailed away under her own power I have a link here:

But has the engine been taken out ? can somebody furnish this info.?
Kelvin Davies on Jul 03, 2013 22:07 (6 years ago)
Liquified OR liquefied. Each is equally valid.
Oxford English Dictionary says "Liquefy can also be spelled liquify, with an i before the f: both are correct, but liquefy is more common".
Anyway, should this ship be in a new category; Scaffolding Carrier!

LIQUEFIED (not liquified)
Allan RO on Jul 03, 2013 21:47 (6 years ago)

Incorect, LPG = Liquified Petroleum Gas, see my earlier post

jadran on Jul 03, 2013 21:37 (6 years ago)
LNG = Liquid Natural Gas
LPG = Liquid Purified Gas
sandygates on Jul 03, 2013 21:33 (6 years ago)
And just in case anyone is wondering: FSRU stands for Floating Storage and Re-gasification Unit
Allan RO on Jul 03, 2013 21:10 (6 years ago)
very simple, LNG is basically methane, LPG refers to gases made from crude oil/petroleum, such as ethane, propane, butane, propene, butadiene etc etc


Danibykov on Jul 03, 2013 20:37 (6 years ago)
She has never been LPG. And the difference between LNG and LPG is clear, especially when Moss, not membrane, tanks are installed.
Emmanuel.L on Jul 03, 2013 05:17 (6 years ago)
Has the engine been taken out of this vessel? Shewas towed in by 2 tugs.Her bow surely doesnt help if she is powered as originally when she was launched as a conventional LPG gas carrier.
Emmanuel.L on Jul 02, 2013 12:37 (6 years ago)
Christian, I dont think there are many of these vessels at the moment, but they will certainly be more as LPG seems to be gaining more popularity as fuel for power stations, much more cleaner .
Christian on Jul 02, 2013 11:31 (6 years ago)
Awsome picture! We don't get ofter to see it :)

Thank you for sharing.

Emmanuel.L on Jul 01, 2013 22:01 (6 years ago)
Ugly she may be ,but it serves its purpose. LNG is the fuel of the future.
Dеnis on Jul 01, 2013 18:27 (6 years ago)
Uglyfied for sure!
