Babcock Schulte Energy, a 50:50 joint venture between Bernhard Schulte Shipmanagement (BSM) and Babcock International, will install fuel tanks made of composite material for their liquefied natural gas (LNG) gas supply vessel (GSV).
They have placed an order for high-pressure compressed natural gas (CNG) TITAN tanks from Hexagon Lincoln, a subsidiary of Hexagon Composites on Thursday (15 January).
The TITAN cylinders will store compressed boil-off-gas from the LNG tanks and flash gas from cargo operations and supply the CNG as fuel to the ship's dual-fuel propulsion engines.
“We're really pleased to have been chosen by Babcock LGE Process to work on this cutting-edge project,” said Miguel Raimao, Vice President Mobile Pipeline Americas at Hexagon Lincoln.
“Babcock's boil-off-gas recovery system is an innovative way of meeting stringent emission regulations. It is a cost-effective way for vessel operators to address environmental concerns, and our TITAN tanks are a key enabler for achieving this.
“TITAN remains the industry leader for large scale Type 4 storage vessels; it's the only marine scale solution that combines lightweight with high pressure performance.”
According to Hexagon Lincoln, the boil-off-gas recovery system has been designed by Babcock LGE Process.
The TITAN cylinders will form an integral part of the ship's patent pending FGSV0TM system, also developed by Babcock LGE Process, to enable the LNG bunker vessel to meet the emission limits of the IMO Emission Control Areas (ECA) regulations.
“By compressing the boil-off and flash gas and supplying it as fuel to the ship's engines, our clients will save distillate fuel costs and at the same time reduce the vessel's emissions of sulphur oxides (SOx) and particulate matter (PM)," said Andrew Scott, General Manager at Babcock LGE Process.
“In addition, we eliminate fugitive emissions of LNG from the cargo systems, providing a true zero emissions solution.”
