Nigeria LNG

Nigeria LNG is a 1:25 scale LNG ship modelled on the 175,000m³ twin-skeg DFDE LNG carriers built in Korea by Samsung Heavy Industries for Bonny Gas Transport Ltd (BGT). The model was built by Nigeria LNG Ltd (NLNG).

The scale model will be used by NLNG for training senior navigation officers in the BGT fleet, as well as Bonny River pilots in the handling of six new ships built for NLNG. These ships are twin-screw, dual-fuel (gas or diesel) deisel-electric ships and are fitted with a bow thruster.

The scale model is 11.68 metres long and weighs 7.8 tonnes. It has two fixed inward turning propellers, two independent rudders, and is fitted with operating anchors and a water ballast system to allow for alterations of trim or draught, replicating different load conditions for training purposes.
