MAN Cryo to supply LNG fuel-gas system
MAN Cryo – MAN Energy Solutions’ marine LNG fuel-gas-system manufacturer – will supply an LNG fuel-gas supply system to Norwegian ship owner, Egil Ulvan Rederi, for a ‘multipurpose palletised cargo and refrigerated vessel’ newbuild, also known as a LoLo (Lift-on/Lift-off).
The supply system for Oddrun With will comprise a vertical, vacuum-insulated 364 m3 LNG tank; a complex tank-connection space with two redundant LNG supply trains, based on both a pump and a pressure-build-up unit; an LNG cold-recovery evaporator; and an integrated bunker station (BS100-GR).
Louise Andersson, head of MAN Cryo, said: “This specialised vessel makes its own unique demands for reliability and redundancy and we are happy to rise to the challenge with an innovative solution that includes a vertical fuel tank.
“Ulvan’s interest in clean technology goes hand in glove with our ambition to become a leading supplier of LNG-fuelled solutions.”
Multi Maritime design
Designed by Norway-based Multi Maritime, the 86m long, 3,500dwt Oddrun With has reefer capacity, a refrigerated hold and elevators for palletised goods, as well as the capability to discharge fish food at fish farms along its route.
The MM85CC design vessel will be built at Tersan Shipyard in Turkey with delivery due for late 2020.
Following construction, the vessel will service the round trip between Tromsø in northern Norway to Østfold in the southeast.
Worldwide, just a few vertical LNG tanks are in operation that are classed for marine applications. Compared to horizontal tanks, vertical tanks have less impact on stability due to smaller liquid surface; are less likely to create sloshing; and have increased hydrostatic pressure, facilitating fuel flow.
