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.”

Webinar will offer delegates insights on the prevention of operational issues when using VLSFOs, along with an update on biofuels and bunker fuel quality trends for 2021 and its forecast for the current year.
Heating VLSFOs to prevent cold flow issues causes issues related to distillate ageing, and there is a gentle balance to be maintained when handling the product.
Research into n-paraffin distribution of VLSFOs has shown that they not only differ from MGO, but significantly differ from each other as well, states bulletin.
Bunker Holding and Dan-Bunkering have decided not to appeal the city court ruling in the case where the companies were on trial for breaching EU sanctions against Syria, states USTC.
Poll shows market participants think Singapore’s future as a bunkering hub in the near term will be impacted most by growth in alternative bunker fuels and intensifying competition from other ports in Asia.
‘We will now take the necessary time to consider and evaluate the verdict and the premises of the verdict thoroughly before making any decision of whether to appeal to a higher court,’ informs company.
