China: CSSC No.716 Research Institute to install LNG bunkering hose system on “Hai Yang Shi You 301”

21 Sep 2022

The No.716 Research Institute of China State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSSC), on Tuesday (20 September) announced its role in installing a liquefied natural gas (LNG) bunkering hose system for the renovation project of the Hai Yang Shi You 301 bunkering vessel, according to CSSC on Tuesday (20 September).

The institute recently won the order to install the system for the transformation project.

The system will be installed on the bunkering station at the bow of the bunkering ship and can be used for LNG bunkering operations between ships. It has large bunkering flow capabilities, high level safety and reliability, and strong environmental adaptability.

CSSC said the bunkering system will help promote construction of LNG filling centres in the Pearl River Delta, Yangtze River Delta, and Bohai Rim by providing localised equipment support.

Manifold Times previously reported China’s first LNG bunkering vessel renovation project kicked off on 2 August Guangzhou Wenchong Shipyard. 

After the transformation, Hai Yang Shi You 301 will become the world’s largest LNG bunkering vessel, which can provide flexible bunkering services for offshore and inland LNG vessels. 

The vessel was originally a 30,000 cubic metre (m3) LNG carrier with a total length of 184.7 metres and a width of 28.1 metres.

The renovation work was expected to take more than 80 days and will be completed by the end of October 2022.
