design concept for a crude oil tanker that
it claims offers improved energy efficiency,
reduced CO2 emissions, increased cargo
capacity, and minimised oil outflow in case
of an accident.
The design concept, the Aframax

by optimising the hull's hydrodynamic
performance, taking into account
long-term freight rate levels and
projected bunker costs.

Custom-built ships are being planned
to carry CO2 waste from power stations
and other major industrial plants to
underground storage facilities. Lloyd's
Register is working on a number of
projects with owners and shipbuilders.
LR said the ship designs it has been
working on would be able to carry CO2 and
other types of liquefied gases. The vessels
may be designed to carry the other cargoes
on the return legs of voyages or as part of
