DNV GL has initiated a follow-up of the successful LNGreen project, which was awarded the CWC LNG Technical Innovation Award for 2015. The joint development project will build on the learnings from the first project to further increase the efficiency and cost effectiveness of the concept. By continuing to investigate new technologies and improve the integrated systems and machinery configurations and the containment system, the project seeks to bring a ready-to-build concept to the market realizing the potential savings in actual operation.
The original partners consisting of GTT, GasLog, Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) and DNV GL will all continue their engagement in the new project and have agreed to contribute with their unique competence and experience.
“The fact that all partners have agreed to contribute to continued innovation is a confirmation of the achievements in the first project and a proof of the positive cooperation between leading players in the industry,” commented DNV GL project manager Daniel Nordås. “The mutual trust built over the course of the first project also forms a solid base to drive innovative solutions to the market for the benefit of builders, owners and operators.”
The project is due for completion by the end of this year.
