CHS stands for Cargo Handling System. Any liquefied gas may be handled by CMIT CHS. LNG is one of the most challenging liquefied gases to be handled because of its cryogenic storage temperature and hazards due to its flammability.
LNG is also the only liquefied gas that may be used as fuel for the Main Engines and Auxiliary Engines. It can also be used as fuel for onboard steam generators.
The CHS is usually combined with a Fuel Gas system, which can handle the BOG (Boil Off Gas) and produce fuel gas at the right pressure and temperature for the use in Engines or Boilers.
CMIT CHS may be fitted to any IMO IGC Tank Type (Type A, Type B, Type C and Membrane), to any storage volume and to any natural gas propulsion system.
