SunRui of China has concluded its first order for the company's GasLink LNG fuel gas supply system (FGSS) Wuhu Shipyard, to be installed on a 12000 dwt/11,700masphalt/oil tanker for Canadian ship owner McAsphalt

Wuhu Shipyard chairman Zhao Zhang said: “FGSS as one of the core equipment on board, the technological level and service quality of FGSS supplier are very important factors for both Wuhu Shipyard and McAsphalt when making decisions. Through numerous technical exchanges and third-party evaluations among Wuhu Shipyard, McAsphalt, and SunRui, we are impressed about the product quality, market reputation, service capability, and advanced technology of SunRui. They have proved to us that SunRui is fully qualified for this project through their analogue simulation technology and land-based FGSS test site, we are now having faith in SunRui.”

GM SunRui Hongtian Fu said: “Wuhu Shipyard as a well-known dual fuel ship manufacturer with rich experiences, the trust from Wuhu brings us a great among of confidence for our future development in the FGSS field. We are expecting a pleasant cooperation on this project, and furthermore, we are also looking forward to having more cooperation opportunities in multiple fields with Wuhu in the future.”

As a crucial item of marine equipment, the operating condition of the FGSS relates directly to ship running condition. However, the core technologies have been monopolised by a few companies for the past few years. Relying on its R&D capabilities, SunRui developed GasLink LNG FGSS with proprietary intellectual property rights. SunRui has formed High-Pressure, Low-Pressure, Self-Pressurised, and Outside-Pump Pressurised FGSS in order to adapt the system to all sizes and types of LNG powered vessels. In addition, the company has built an after-service network coving all major ports worldwide for SunRui clients to have the best user experiences.

Besides this contract with Wuhu shipyard, the company has seen interest from many well-known shipyards and engaged in numerous designs of new types of LNG powered vessels.
