SHIPBUILDING AND BOATBUILDING

The WES AMELIE is the world’s first container ship to sail the high seas powered by a liquefied gas drive system. This helps protect the environment because liquefied natural gas plays a role in reducing air pollutant emissions. Support bearings provide the necessary thermal insulation for the fuel tank, which stores the liquefied gas at minus 164°C. They are made from Lignostone® cryogenic, laminated densified wood, by Röchling.
