Mitsubishi Shipbuilding Co., Ltd., a part of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) Group, on Monday (19 October) said it has been granted an Approval in Principle (AiP) from the French classification society Bureau Veritas (BV) for a liquefied natural gas (LNG) fuel gas supply system (FGSS) for marine four-stroke dual fuel engines.
The FGSS comprises an LNG fuel tank, gas supply unit, control systems and other relevant equipment, it explained.
The FGSS to which the AiP was granted was developed mainly to be installed on coastal ferries and small to mid-sized cargo ships, said Mitsubishi.
The small size vacuum-insulated type tanks to be applied for the system have a double shell structure that ensures high heat insulation and also allows the external cylinder of the tank to be at normal temperature, which consequently simplifies the support structure of the tank and reduces the workload for the installation work.
Further, the Tank Connection Space is also designed to save space while giving consideration to realise easy operation and less maintenance.
Mitsubishi Shipbuilding delivered its FGSS in 2019 for installation on Japan’s first LNG-fueled car carrier, currently being built at Shin Kurushima Toyohashi Shipbuilding Co., Ltd., and has one more order for the ship currently under construction.
The firm added it will continue to expand its product lineup to meet the increasing demand for LNG fuel.
