    Offshore e-chain powers vessels in open sea safely(31/10/2018)

    LNG terminal are looking into new ways to supply ships with shore power, as opposed to using dual-fuel diesel engines (DFDEs) to offload their cargoes, in a bid to reduce noxious gas and particulate emissions. These engines are capable of burning a range of fuels, from heavy fuel oil to boil-off-gas (BOG) from the LNG load. The igus shore power energy chain for LNG terminals provides flexible tidal compensation, even for horizontal and rotational movements.
