Technology of LNG fueled / bunkering
LNG fueled vessels and bunkering use closely related technology and with increased interest from shipowners, technical needs are increasing.KR is developing its survey technology and conducting more research.
With the support of the Korean Agency for Technology and Standards, KR has made two ISO standards covering “integrated performance test procedure for LNG Fuel Gas Supply System (FGSS) for ship” with Korea Marine Equipment Research Institute (KOMERI).
- ISO/DIS 22547 Ship and marine technology - Performance test procedure for high-pressure pump in LNG Fuel Gas Supply System (FGSS) for ship
- ISO/DIS 22548 Ship and marine technology - Performance test procedure of vessel LNG Fuel Gas Supply System (FGSS)
With increasing numbers of eco-friendly ship orders, these standards will be the performance test procedure for LNG FGSS. Related industry development will use these standards as a technical base. KR can act as technical advisor and will secure class approval.
KR is researching operations and suitability of LNG-BV reflecting ship owners growing interest and will as ever work to provide the best solutions for its customers.
