LNG regasification control system agreement
DSME and Kongsberg Maritime have signed a Joint Development Agreement (JDA) for a new LNG FSRU regasification control system.
As part of the delivery scope for a vessel currently under construction at the Okpo shipyard in South Korea, DSME will develop a High Fidelity Dynamic Simulator for the regasification plant.
The JDA enables DSME to utilise Kongsberg Maritime’s Dynamic Process Simulator ‘K-Spice’ and the ‘K-Chief’ automation and control system for the joint development of the vessel’s regasification control system.
Young Bok Choi, vice president at DSME Naval & Energy System R&D, said: “Entering this JDA with Kongsberg Maritime as a major partner, and to many shipping companies, a trusted supplier makes good sense for DSME. We believe it will be a very significant stepping stone for further development projects and together we can provide our customers with world leading technology solutions.”
Both parties have extensive experience in the field of LNG vessel control systems. DSME is fast approaching delivery of 100 LNG ships, many of them operating with Kongsberg Maritime’s LNG control system on board.
During the company’s long-standing partnership in the LNG business, several different concepts for gas handling have been developed.
Further to the signing of the JDA, DSME and Kongsberg Maritime are in further discussions for possible cooperation on marketing activities of the new LNG FSRU regasification control system.
