Singapore-based C-LNG Options has contracted TMC Compressors (TMC) to ship boil-off fuel compressors to a US-built containership that’s presently being transformed to dual-fuel propulsion.
C-LNG Options is offering its liquefied pure fuel (LNG) gasoline fuel provide system to the containership, which is owned by Matson Navigation and transformed at a Chinese language yard. Beneath its contract, C-LNG will provide three 1350-cbm kind C LNG gasoline tanks with in-tank pumps and tank gauging system, low-pressure vaporizer and buffer tank, glycol-water system, and an N2 system.
TMC will present the boil-off fuel compressors to C-LNG’s gasoline fuel provide system. The system captures the boil-off fuel from the LNG gasoline tanks onboard, compresses it, and injects it into the principle engine as gasoline.
“By compressing the boil-off fuel to the required stress to be able to provide it as gasoline straight into the ship’s engine, you have got an optimum system on the subject of power effectivity,” mentioned Hans Petter Tanum, director of gross sales and enterprise growth at TMC. “Using boil-off fuel as a useful useful resource is a intelligent manner of decreasing the vessel’s gasoline prices fairly considerably, with the additional benefit of decreasing dangerous emissions to air too.”
