On July 6, 2009, the world's first commercial single compressed natural gas (CNG) fueled ship, M.V. NP Jenjosh—the first of 12 contracted vessels built in Dajiang and Hongyu shipyards located in Wuhu city of Anhui Province, P.R. China and classed to China Classification Society (CCS)—was delivered to the owner, Jenjosh Group based in Thailand. This paper contains some technical discussions that took place during the class plan review of the subject vessels, including: hull technical practices, machinery, and electrical technical practices, and also discusses designing the similar CNG fueled ships and developing the international gas-fueled (IGF) ship code in future. Finally, this paper draws conclusions and looks forward to the future practice of the CNG fueled ship.
