Kawasaki Heavy to commercialize expandable LNG tank

TOKYO -- Kawasaki Heavy Industries has developed a ship fuel tank that can store up to five times more liquefied natural gas than the existing model.

The adjustable box-shaped tank, which stores gas that has been liquefied and cooled at minus 162 C, can carry anywhere from 2,000 cu. meters to 10,000 cu. meters of the fuel. Dividers inside the tank boost resistance to turbulence.
