Aqualis Offshore was contracted by Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries to provide failure modes and effects analysis for the vessel

Norwegian marine and engineering consultancy Aqualis Offshore will undertake an engineering study of a new-build LNG carrier being built by Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries for Teekay LNG.

Aqualis Offshore was contracted by Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries to provide failure modes and effects analysis (FMEA), hazard dentification (HAZID) and hazard & operability (HAZOP) studies for the boil-off gas handling system and fuel gas system on board the vessel.

Phil Lenox, director Asia Pacific at Aqualis Offshore, said: “We established a physical presence on the doorstep of the many South Korean yards to support industry players who are based in South Korea but operate internationally. This latest contract with Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries confirms that this strategy is beneficial for both the local yards and international companies such as Teekay LNG.”

Managed by Aqualis Offshore’s office in Seoul, South Korea, the engineering project will also provide FMEA-studies of the LNG vessel’s propulsion redundancy and steering system. It will further ensure that electrical generation and distribution systems and associated control systems are designed so a single fault will not impact the ability to maintain cargo tank pressures.

The carrier will be used by Teekay LNG to provide transportation services for BP Shipping's LNG volumes from the Freeport LNG project located on Quintana Island near Freeport, Texas.

The contract value is undisclosed.
