MAN Cryo introduces world’s first methane slip-reducing fuel-gas supply systems

10 May 2022

MAN Cryo, a subsidiary of German engine manufacturer MAN Energy Solutions, on Monday (9 May) said it signed a contract with shipbuilding company Yantai CIMC Raffles Shipyard for the delivery of the fuel-gas supply systems (FGSSs) to a new series of two dual-fuel, 6,500 pure car carriers for Wallenius Marine on charter to Volkswagen.

“This represents yet another world-first for MAN Cryo where the boil-off gas will be sent to the low methane-slip ME-GI via a high-pressure, boil-off-gas compressor,” said Henrik Malm, Managing Director at MAN Energy Solutions, Sweden and Finland. 

“Due to the installed shaft generator, this further reduces the running hours on the auxiliary engines.”

The scope of delivery includes the following:

  • port- and starboard-side bunkering stations
  • LNG storage tank with a volume of 2,300 m3
  • tank connection space with low-pressure vaporizer, BOG heater and two LNG pumps
  • high-pressure gas-handling equipment for delivery of gas to MAN B&W ME-GI two-stroke main engine
  • boil-off gas (BOG) management system, including one high-pressure compressor
  • on-board nitrogen-generation system
  • control system as well as gas-detection system.

The FGSSs for the vessels will be delivered in 2023.
