Under the terms of the contract, Aqualis will provide failure modes and effects analysis (FMEA), hazard identification (HAZID) and hazard and operability (HAZOP) studies for the boil-off gas (BOG) handling system and fuel gas system on board the vessel. In addition to this, the company will provide FMEA studies on the LNG carrier’s propulsion redundancy and steering system, as well as ensure that electrical generation and distribution systems and association control systems are designed so that a single fault will not lead to loss of the ability to maintain cargo tank pressures.
The vessel will be used by Teekay LNG to provide transportation services for BP Shipping’s LNG volumes from the Freeport LNG project, which is located on Quintana Island, near Freeport, Texas, US.
The engineering study project will be managed by Aqualis Offshore’s office in Seoul, South Korea. The contract value has not been disclosed.
Phil Lenox, Director – Asia Pacific, Aqualis Offshore, said: “We established a physical presence on the doorstep of the many South Korean yards to support industry players who are based in South Korea but operate internationally. This latest contract with Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries confirms that this strategy is beneficial for both the local yards and international companies such as Teekay LNG.”
