Catalyst-free methane slip reduction trial on Angelicoussis Group LNGC
The first onboard trial of a catalyst-free methane slip reduction technology system on board a LNG gas carrier is expected to occur after a agreement was signed at Gastech in Singapore last week.
The project relates to the installation of Daphne Technology’s catalyst-free, electrical SlipPure system on board one of the Wärtsilä 34DF auxiliary engines on board the LNG carrier Maran Gas Chios.
The trial project is being supported by a consortium including the ship owner Maran Gas Maritime, the engine supplier Wärtsilä, the charterer Shell International Trading and Shipping Company Limited (Shell) and DNV, which will provide the class approvals. The consortium includes Lloyd’s Register, which will act as the independent auditor.
