ARCTIC PRINCESS
LNG CARRIER

 

When completed, Arctic Princess was the largest LNG carrier ever built: 288 meters long with a breadth of 49 m and a capacity of 147,000 cubic meters of LNG.  She is also the first LNG carrier that will be employed for carrying liquefied natural gas (LNG) from the world's northernmost LNG development--Snohvit. 

 The LNG is carried at a temperature of minus 163 degrees centigrade in four Moss containment system spherical tanks, each with a diameter of 42 meters. A full cargo load of LNG is sufficient to cover the yearly energy consumption of all households in a city with a population of 45,000 people.

The building contract for Arctic Princess was entered into with Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd (MHI) in Japan in December 2001 and the vessel was delivered on schedule in 2006.  Arctic Princess  is  chartered to the Snohvit Sellers for a period of 20 years.   
 

 
 
 

  
 


This Arctic Princess  LNG ship model has the following qualities:

- Superior hollow-hull construction (very important), weighing less than 10 lbs  (A solid hull of this model would be over 40 lbs which feels like a heavy toy rather than an art piece.)

- Hollow superstructure is comprised of many individual thin pieces of wood glued together, not several solid pieces of wood stacking on top one another.

- Windows are cutouts (not black decals), thanks to the hollow structures.

- >95% of parts are wood and metal
.

40" long x 11" tall x 7.5" wide.   Base is included.  $2,700     S & H is $90
