The Joint Industry Project LNG CONV is participating in the establishment of an LNG infrastructure via Pilot LNG by converting an existing vessel to LNG and closely following the different stages from technology implementation at the yard via bunkering to operational start.
JIP LNG CONV is presented today at the MoS Conference together with the five other JIPs within the framework of Pilot LNG.
Results so far
Experience gained regarding insulation, configurations and locations of LNG bunker tanks including stability problems, employment for the vessel, routes and future bunker stations, fuel system, pressurised tanks or pump solution (minimise the boil off risk). At the moment measurements of exhaust emissions are carried out to be compared with emissions after conversion in 2015.
