DSME orders Bestobell cryogenic valves

cryogenic valvesSouth Korea-based shipbuilder Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) has ordered cryogenic valves from Parker Bestobell Marine for three LNG carriers it is building for Teekay LNG.

The three ships are part of a series of eight DSME is building for Teekay and Parker Bestobell also supplied valves to the previous five ships. The Sheffield, UK-based equipment supplier has a long relationship with DSME, having supplied the shipyard with valves for 16 years and having recently secured an order to supply globe and check valves for the shipyard’s Yamal series of 15 icebreaking LNG carriers.

Ownership of the Yamal fleet is split amongst a number of players. In addition to SCF, and its involvement with the lead vessel, Teekay will operate six ships, Dynagas five and Mitsui OSK Lines (MOL) three. The full fleet will be jointly classed by BV and the Russian Maritime Register.

Parker Bestobell manufactures cryogenic valves for LNG carriers, floating storage and regasification units (FSRUs) and LNG fuel-gas systems.

“We are delighted that DSME has specified our cryogenic valves for all eight vessels in this series,” says Parker Bestobell market-development manager Duncan Gaskin. “We have a strong working relationship with DSME and a firm commitment to deliver our… valves on time and in line with their production schedules. This is a very important consideration for DSME’s LNG newbuild projects.”

DSME Completes Delivery of World’s First LNG-powered Container Ship

DSME, LNG-powered Container Ship DSME DSME Completes Delivery of World’s First LNG-powered Container Ship LNG Powered container

The world’s first container ship powered by liquefied natural gas (LNG), which has been built by Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) with proprietary technology, has successfully completed a sea trial and will be put on an actual route.

According to an official at the DSME on Oct. 20, NASSCO, a subsidiary of leading U.S. defense company General Dynamics, recently delivered the Isla Bella, a 3,100 TEU container ship, to Totem Ocean Trailer Express (TOTE) Maritime after the completion of the sea trial. The ship is the world’s first LNG-powered container ship that includes patented technologies from the DSME and its subsidiaries.

The DSME generalized the basic design and supply of its own patented high-pressure LNG fuel gas supply system, while its subsidiary Shinhan Machinery was in charge of manufacturing equipment. Also, its design subsidiary DSEC took charge of the overall design and material package supply.

The LNG-powered system has lower emissions and increased fuel efficiency when compared to conventional diesel-powered ships. Accordingly, it is considered to be “the future of the shipbuilding industry.” The ship can reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by 23 percent and sulfur oxide emissions by more than 95 percent compared to conventional ships using heavy fuel oil (HFO). Also, fuel consumption can be cut by nearly 35 percent. Based on its patents and technologies, the DSME has won more than 30 LNG carrier orders. The company boasts its unrivaled competitiveness in LNG-related technology.

In the process of the sea trial, the DSME proved its LNG gas supply system technology by successfully securing a stable supply of fuel. The system supplies high-pressure natural gas to the engine from the fuel tank, and it is considered a core technology in natural gas-powered ships. The DSME has secured price competitiveness through its high-pressure LNG vaporizing system and contributed greatly to the commercialization of natural gas as fuel for ships.
