LNG FGSS (Fuel Gas Supply System) refers to the use of LNG as the ship’s fuel.
As of January 1, 2020, due to the International Maritime Organization (IMO) environmental regulations, the sulfur content of ship fuel oil has been strengthened from 3.5% to 0.5%, and interest in ships using LNG as fuel is increasing. In line with this trend, the demand for LNG FGSS is also increasing.
The main equipment of the LNG FGSS consists of LNG fuel tanks, vaporizers that raise the temperature of the cryogenic LNG to about 25 to 40 degree Celsius, and LNG bunkering station(s) connecting manifold that charges LNG.
In addition to the main equipment, additional equipment for pressure build-up such as pumps and compressors may be installed before the vaporizer to meet the gas pressure required by the gas consumers.
FGSS control system is applied to integrate, control and monitor all equipment which operates LNG fuel gas supply system.
Valmax Technology specializes in providing energy solutions and provides total solutions from design to manufacture and commissioning of FGSS for ships.
