Qingdao-based marine technology company Headway Technology Group on Tuesday (20 October) said its OceanGuard® Marine LNG Fuel Gas Supply System (FGSS) has received an Approval in Principle (AiP) Certificate from DNV GL on 11 October.
The certification scope of the AiP certificate includes comprehensive solutions for medium-pressure, high-pressure, and BOG compressor systems.
Headway noted the OceanGuard® FGSS was jointly developed by Headway, China University of Petroleum, and other top universities.
With its strict review and technical observations, the company noted DNV GL confirmed the system has fully met the International Maritime Organization (IMO) IGF rules and DNV GL requirements.
The company explained OceanGuard® FGSS achieved technological breakthroughs in system processing routes, safety automation design, and safety control management.
The system is able to detect its working status at any time to ensure the redundancy, reliability, and safety of the security system.
Additionally, the system has an integrated gas recovery system, which can prevent natural gas leakage when it approaches the extreme load changes of high-pressure from the main engine.
Headway added it has recently signed an agreement with Rui Neng Ocean Shipping for FGSS solutions on 10 of its vessels.
In the future, Headway said it plans to construct a shore-based real-time data monitoring platform that builds on upcoming digital fleet management systems, to provide more maritime intelligence related products to shipowners and shipyards.
