MAN Cryo Lands World-First

FGSS sends boil-off gas to ME-GI main engine vis BOG compressor; minimises methane slip

MAN Cryo, part of MAN Energy Solutions and a leading expert in the field of storage and handling of LNG and natural gas, has announced the signing of a contract with Yantai CIMC Raffles Shipyard for the delivery of the fuel-gas supply systems (FGSSs) to a new series of two dual-fuel, 6,500 pure car carriers for Wallenius Marine on charter to Volkswagen.

Henrik Malm, Managing Director at MAN Energy Solutions, Sweden and Finland, said “This represents yet another world-first for MAN Cryo where the boil-off gas will be sent to the low methane-slip ME-GI via a high-pressure, boil-off-gas compressor. Due to the installed shaft generator, this further reduces the running hours on the auxiliary engines.”

The scope of delivery includes the following:

  • port- and starboard-side bunkering stations
  • LNG storage tank with a volume of 2,300 m3
  • tank connection space with low-pressure vaporizer, BOG heater and two LNG pumps
  • high-pressure gas-handling equipment for delivery of gas to MAN B&W ME-GI two-stroke main engine
  • boil-off gas (BOG) management system, including one high-pressure compressor
  • ·on-board nitrogen-generation system
  • control system as well as gas-detection system.

The FGSSs for the vessels will be delivered during 2023.
