SunRui Marine Environment Engineering Co., Ltd. (SunRui) on Wednesday (15 June) signed a contract with Dalian Shipbuilding Industry Corporation (DSIC) to provide six marine LNG fuel gas supply systems (FGSS).
SunRui will deliver the FGSS to DSIC in 2023 for six newbuilds of 16,000 TEU LNG powered container vessels.
The vessels were ordered by one of the world’s largest container companies and designed to be equipped with the largest WinGD low-speed dual-fuel engines.
SunRui, a subsidiary and research institute of China State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSSC), realised the trend of the marine industry to minimise carbon footprint and started its own research and development from 2017.
With five years’ of efforts, SunRui has developed core technologies of FGSS, including principle system design, LNG tank design, cryogenic analysis, system simulation and prototype construction.
After rounds of evaluations during FGSS selection of the 16,000 TEU container project, SunRui Gaslink FGSS was chosen by both DSIC and the ship owner.
Additionally, SunRui has developed its own FGSS simulation platform with DIGITAL-TWINS technology.
The platform digitalises the physical parameters and system models of the entire FGSS, setting up a twin-system in the computer.
With the platform, technicians can not only simulate the system’s full specification and operation during the design stage, but also the commissioning and crew training process.
SunRui has built its own land-based FGSS testing facility in Yantai, China, for research, simulation and operation.
The testing results of the prototype have been successfully acknowledged and approved by major system users including shipowners and shipyards, which were witnessed by class societies in 2021.
