Kongsberg Maritime has announced that it has received an order to supply an automation solution including its Fuel Gas Supply System (FGSS) for a newbuild LNG-fuelled bulk carrier, ordered by Ilshin Shipping Co.
The LNG-fuelled bulk carrier will be built at Hyundai Mipo Dockyard and is scheduled for delivery during 4Q17. It is the first dual-fuel merchant vessel to be built in South Korea.
In addition to the new FGSS solution, the delivery includes K-Chief 600 alarm, monitoring and control system, AutoChief 600 propulsion control system, Bearing Wear Monitoring System (BWCM), Emergency Shutdown (ESD) System and K-Gauge fuel tank monitoring.
