SHI won deal for 2 LNG carriers from Celsius Tankers

07 February 2019

Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) has revealed on January 29th that it won a deal for two 180,000 m3 LNG carriers from Europe's Celsius Tankers.

The LNG carriers will be fitted with SHI's developed eco-friendly and Smart ship technologies: SAVER Air and INTELLIMAN Ship. This will help to respond to the upcoming environmental regulations and significantly increase energy saving, thereby further increasing the operational efficiency of vessels.

SAVER Air is a type of an energy saving device, which reduces the friction between seawater by blowing air onto the bottom of a ship hull to improve fuel efficiency.

In addition, INTELLIMAN Ship applied to the carriers can effectively respond to the emission regulations such as EU-MRV and IMO-DCS.

The EU MRV (Monitoring, Reporting, Verification) regulation requires ship owners and operators to annually monitor, report and verify CO2 emissions for vessels larger than 5,000 gross tonnage (GT) calling at any EU port.

IMO's fuel Data Collection System (DCS) applies to ships of 5,000 gross tonnage and above calling at any port under the jurisdiction of EU member states to enforce the reduction of emissions from ships.
