Alfa Laval stated its FCM Methanol will certainly be the low-flashpoint gas supply system (LFSS) on 6 1170 TEU containerships gotten by Eastaway, a participant of the X-Press Feeders Group The brand-new vessel collection, to be developed at Chinese shipyards Ningbo Xinle Shipbuilding Group Co., Ltd as well as New Dayang Shipbuilding Co., Ltd, will certainly have two-stroke guy B&W ME-LGIM engines that can work on methanol in addition to traditional gas. The FCM Methanol shipments will certainly start in June 2023.
Peter Nielsen, President, Alfa Laval Marine Separation & & Heat Transfer Equipment, stated,“With their ability to sail on green methanol, these vessels will be front-runners in the move to carbon-neutral operations. Methanol is a major advance on the path to decarbonization, and the FCM Methanol can be instrumental for shipowners in making the leap.”
Because methanol innovation is a brand-new aspect in shipbuilding, lawns take on various arrangements to fit their understanding contour. Given the intricacy as well as extent in this task, the lawns have actually worked with design firms to acquire as well as incorporate the methanol-related elements. The FCM Methanol was picked as a result of its one-of-a-kind adaptability as well as Alfa Laval’s substantial methanol experience.
With fully grown modern technologies as well as trusted automation, the FCM Methanol securely provides methanol within the circulation price, stress, temperature level as well as filtering specifications defined by the engine manufacturer. Because it can be adjusted to any type of engine as well as vessel style, it makes it possible for complete LFSS shipments for very easy installment. Since 2015, the system has actually been picked in almost 20 methanol tasks for greater than 10 big delivery firms.
“Over years at sea, the FCM Methanol has established a leading position in the industry,” claims Alfa Laval’s Viktor Friberg, Head of Marine Separation & &Fuel Supply Systems “Shipowners can count on its proven automation to keep methanol operations safe and secure, but the design advantages are equally strong for engineering companies and shipbuilders. From integration to operation, the FCM Methanol makes it simpler to work with this new green fuel.”
