In partnership with Cryovision, Gaztransport & Technigaz (GTT) has announced it has successfully installed its first LNG sloshing monitoring system – SloShield. This system monitors the impact made by the sloshing of LNG and provides the vessel’s crew with real-time data. The LNG carrier, GasLog Singapore is the first vessel to be equipped with SloShield as part of a cooperation agreement that was signed with the ship owner – GasLog Ltd. This agreement includes an early observation phase, crew training and a study by GTT of the sloshing and boil-off rate in the tanks.
Philippe Berterottière, the Chairman and CEO of GTT, said: “We are very pleased to cooperate with GasLog, a global leader in the LNG shipping industry, who owns a large fleet equipped with GTT technologies. This agreement also illustrates the importance we place on serving the LNG transportation industry in its operations with a large service offer.”
Theodoros Katemedis, the General Manager of Newbuilding Technology and Projects of GasLog, added: “Innovation is one of GasLog's core values and we constantly look to improve the performance of our vessels through new technology. The installation of SloShield on the GasLog Singapore illustrates our desire to continuously monitor and improve our onboard systems. We believe this will further optimise the operations of our vessels and lead to improved efficiencies for GasLog and our customers going forwards.”
