GE and Hudong-Zhonghua Shipyard have received ABS Approval in Principle for their jointly developed 100 MW LNG Power Supply Vessel design.

The ship features GE’s Combined Gas turbine, Electric and Steam (COGES) system and unlike traditional power barges, this ship features three LNG tanks (32,000 cbm total) for fuel supply so that additional fuel bunkering ships are no longer needed.

Ideal configuration

“This configuration is ideal for utilities and other applications that require power as the ship will export electricity to a land based electrical transmission system. Customers will get better environment performance, reliability inherited from GE’s aviation flight engines and a more flexible, compact arrangement,” said Brien Bolsinger, vice president, marine operations, GE.

“Thanks to GE’s modular COGES power trains, the vessel well accommodates three power trains on its upper deck with total 100 MW capacity, and could expand capacity by adding more power trains,” said Chen Jun, general manager, HZ

Eric Kleess, ABS Division President and COO, added: “By awarding AiP to GE and HZ, we have acknowledged that this LNG power supply vessel is in compliance in principle with ABS standards and international regulations. We are confident that this joint design can provide a competitive power supply solution to customers.”

Each COGES system features one GE LM2500+ gas turbine generator, one heat recovery steam generator (HRSG) and one steam turbine generator. The ship is equipped with two azimuth thrusters to move independently without tugboats.
