MITSUBISHI RECEIVES FIRST ORDER FOR HIGH PRESSURE LNG FGSS

MITSUBISHI RECEIVES FIRST ORDER FOR HIGH PRESSURE LNG FGSS

Tuesday, December 28, 2021 

Mitsubishi Shipbuilding, a part of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) Group, has taken its first order for LNG fuel gas supply systems for high-pressure dual-fuel marine engines, for installation on LNG-fuelled car carriers to be built by Imabari Shipbuilding Group.

The core components of the newly ordered FGSS are LNG fuel tanks, LNG fuel gas supply units and a control unit. The equipment module is designed for space-saving and simple maintainability. The system contributes to the optimum design of the cargo space and helps the shipyard to shorten the installation period, as well as supporting safe operation by customising the system and its controls to meet the operational needs of the customer.

According to MHI, conversion of marine fuels to LNG is one of solutions responding to today’s emissions regulations targeting reduction of greenhouse gases (GHG). Mitsubishi Shipbuilding’s FGSS has been developed for marine engines following experience with systems for onshore engine test facilities. Its development draws on the company’s LNG and vaporised gas handling technologies accumulated through its experience with construction of LNG carriers. The company has already received orders for and delivered FGSS for marine low-pressure engines, and this latest order for FGSS for marine high-pressure engines means that the company has acquired orders for both low-pressure and high-pressure types.

Through providing FGSS to an expanding number of customers involved in the construction of LNG-fuelled ships, Mitsubishi Shipbuilding says it promotes energy transition while also enhancing the added value and competitiveness of marine vessels. As a marine system integrator, the company will strive to achieve carbon neutrality by helping to reduce GHG emissions through the popularisation of LNG-fuelled vessels.
