In order to be permitted to sail with a LNG cryogenic tank aboard, a ship needs to comply with very strict safety requirements. The Dutch inspection for infrastructure and the environment (IVW) and Lloyds Register have performed a risk analysis which will lead to a so-called ‘equality certificate’. The safety requirements are currently very strict, due to the lack of legislation and regulations. The Argonon project is used to be able to establish optimal legislation and regulations in the future regarding sailing on LNG. The future requirements are expected to be less strict. However, it goes without saying that no risks will be taken in this phase of the development.
