Mitsubishi Shipbuilding Co. has delivered the first LNG fuel supply system (FGSS) for dual fuel marine engines.

The system will be installed on board the first LNG fuelled pure car carrier built in Japan, which is currently under construction at Shin Kurushima Toyohashi Shipbuilding.

The FGSS comprises LNG fuel tanks, LNG fuel gas supply units and control unit and is delivered in modules, helping optimise cargo space and shorten the installation period, as well as supporting safe operation by customising the control system to meet the needs of the ship owner.

Mitsubishi Shipbuilding has also provided the shipbuilding yard with engineering services and technical support relating to the gas handling of the ship.

The supply of FGSS is expected to contribute to the environmental performance of the ship, both meeting sulphur oxide emissions regulations and improving the energy efficiency (CO2 emissions per unit of transportation) by approximately 40%.

The ship is additionally expected to reduce SOx by approximately 99% and NOx by approximately 86% compared with conventional heavy oil-fired engines. The ship has also been adopted by Japan's Ministry of Environment and Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism as the model project to reduce CO2 emissions through the use of alternative fuels.
