FGSS stands for Fuel Gas Supply System. It is a gas handling system needed for LNG fuelled ships and includes the bunkering station, LNG tank and related process equipment as well as the control and monitoring system. Many different types of operations must be carried out automatically.
Two different types of LNG Type C tanks may be selected depending upon specific requirements of the shipowner.
The pressure system depends upon the type of selected propulsion. However, a low-pressure system may reach maximum 25 barg gas supply pressure.
Type C tank can have two different types of insulation:
- Vacuum Perlite or Polyurethane. Type C tank can be either cylindrical or prismatic
- FGSS is directly connected to the tank. The location can be adjusted depending upon specific needs
