LNG AS MARINE FUEL

By using LNG as a marine fuel with addition of EEDI and implementation of some operational measures your vessel can meet the IMO 2030 targets.

Benefits of LNG

  • Lower carbon emissions
  • Return of investment (ROI) if the LNG bunkering price is lower than that of low sulphur MGO (LSFO)
  • Existing infrastructure with more and more bunker options
  • Proven technology
  • Higher energy density than methanol and hydrogen

We design and build systems to meet your vessel’s functional design requirements and any specific wishes you may have. We keep you involved at every stage of the project, from a blank piece of paper to the end product. There’s no need for you to choose between various subcontractors; we have everything you need to make your project a success.

LOWER EMISSIONS

LNG produced from sustainable hydrogen is an endlessly renewable energy source. It is also the cleanest fossil fuel currently on the market. Vessels with LNG fuel systems meet (inter)national measures and regulations to reduce emissions and contribute to a cleaner environment for future generations.

By using LNG as a marine fuel with addition of EEDI and implementation of some operational measures your vessel can meet the IMO 2030 targets.

Use of LNG as a marine fuel reduces the entire vessel’s sulfur dioxide (SOx) emissions and eliminates about 80% of the nitrogen oxide (NOx). In addition, LNG has a lower carbon content than traditional marine fuels, allowing for a reduction in carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by up to 25%. For these reasons, great (inter)national effort is expended on the promotion of LNG and LGB (liquid biogas) use in shipping.

DESIGN POSSIBILITIES

Despite IGF regulations and various additional classification requirements, there is still room for us to accommodate design choices and customer desires. Our methodical design process begins with a personal meeting to define your system’s functional requirements, enabling us to realize a fully custom system. This way we get the best system for your application and the lowest total cost of ownership.

We offer the option to install equipment, pipes, valves and instrumentation in a tank connection space (TCS) or on an LNG conditioning skid. We can also design and supply double walled pipes for use in gas safe machinery spaces. Our systems correspond to your wishes, IGF regulations and classification requirements.
