Hudong Zhonghua Shipbuilding Group and power system provider ABB specified Roxtec EMC sealing solutions for the new build of four LNG carriers.
State-owned Hudong Zhonghua in Shanghai, China, builds the LNG carriers Pan Asia, Pan America, Pan Europe and Pan Africa for the Queensland Curtis LNG project in Australia. Each vessel will transport 174 000 m3 of LNG to different countries.
Preventing multiple risks
Roxtec cable transits are used for the electric propulsion system and the reliquefaction system. The seals combine protection against fire, smoke, gas, water, dust, dirt, vibration and the risk of explosion with elimination of electromagnetic interference (EMI).
Hudong-Zhonghua and ABB both chose the Roxtec EMC sealing system. It is designed to withstand offshore conditions and certified by all major classification societies.
"Roxtec provided us not only with good quality products, but also with excellent service" said Mr Ling Xiaoming, head of electric workshop of the PULNG team at Hudong Zhonghua.
