Mitsubishi Shipbuilding receives first order for high pressure LNG fuel gas supply systems

24 Dec 2021

Mitsubishi Shipbuilding on Thursday (23 December) said it has received its first order for LNG fuel gas supply systems (FGSS) for marine high-pressure dual fuel engines.

These devices will be installed on six LNG-fuelled car carriers that are under construction by a group company of Imabari Shipbuilding Co., Ltd.

The FGSS ordered this time consists of an LNG fuel tank, a gas supply unit, a control device, and more.

According to Mitsubishi Shipbuilding, the FGSS features excellent operability and safety through a space-saving design that is easy to maintain, which shortens the construction process at the shipyard.

The FGSS unit also boasts a unique control interface that can be customised according to customer requirements.

“The conversion of ships to LNG fuel is one solution of emission regulations aimed at reducing greenhouse gas (GHG),” notes the company.

“Mitsubishi Shipbuilding’s FGSS was developed for marine engines after accumulating delivery records for land-based engine test equipment, and utilises the LNG and vaporised gas handling technology cultivated in the construction of LNG carriers.

“Mitsubishi Shipbuilding already has an order and delivery record of FGSS for marine low-pressure engines, and by receiving an order for FGSS for marine high-pressure engines this time, we obtained orders for both low-pressure and high-pressure engines.”
