I used to work with the man who invented the liquefaction process for these ships and designed the first ship of this type to carry the LNG. Wonderful man. Also invented the dialysis machine and a whole host of other useful things that touch our daily lives. Died last year in his mid 90s. Nice to see this legacy carrying on for him.
