SHI awarded contract for two LNG carriers

Published by
LNG Industry,

Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) has announced that it has been awarded a contract by Celsius Tankers to build two 180 000 m3 LNG carriers.

The vessels will feature SHI’s eco-friendly and smart ship technologies: SAVER Air and INTELLIMAN (Intelligent & Lifecycle Managed) Ship.

SAVER Air is an energy saving device that decreases the friction between seawater by blowing air onto the bottom of a ship hull to improve fuel efficiency. According to SHI, this is expected to save 5% on fuel irrespective of the external environment, such as waves and current, which will add up to a year’s fuel cost if the ship operates for 20 years.

INTELLIMAN, meanwhile, is a smart ship solution that can effectively respond to emission regulations, such as EU-MRV and IMO-DCS. Using this solution, SHI claims that operators are able to measure and monitor fuel consumption and CO2 emissions for ships in operation on a real-time basis. As accurate operation reports can be automatically created based on the accumulated data, the reliability of the data is very high.

An official from SHI said: “In order to achieve our 2019 new order target, all the divisions, including Engineering, R&D, Marketing, Production, etc. do everything possible to develop technology, reduce costs, and enhance customer satisfaction.

“We will make sure to improve both the quality and quantity of new orders by clinching deals for high-value added vessels with higher profitability such as LNG carriers.”
