ABS has granted Approval in Principle (AiP) to Technolog for its latest LNG fuel gas container system.
“LNG is an attractive option for shipowners and operators looking to comply with the 2020 Sulfur Cap, however bunkering infrastructure is a constraint. This development from Technolog is a strategy to expand the supply chain and improve access to LNG fuel,” said ABS Vice President for Global Gas Solutions, Patrick Janssens.
The portable tank system, which will ultimately come in 20 and 40 ft containers, is designed to be filled at land-based LNG terminals and shipped to vessels via rail, road or cargo ship before being loaded onboard an LNG-fuelled vessel. Once connected to the power supply system, it is considered part of the vessel and must comply with the IGF Code.
Christoph Rasewsky of Technolog said: “LNG is quickly becoming the alternative fuel of choice. Working with ABS we are demonstrating the viability of our fuel gas container technology as a solution for shipowners and operators examining the feasibility of LNG as fuel for their vessels.”
