Hudong Zhonghua Shipbuilding (Group) Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of China State Shipbuilding Corporation, independently developed and built the world’s most advanced 174,000 cubic meters large-scale floating liquefied natural gas storage and The regasification vessel (LNG-FSRU), named "Transporter Spirit" at the China Shipbuilding Changxing Shipbuilding Base, was completed 5 months earlier than the contract period. The ship is the sister ship of the "Transporter Force" delivered in June this year. It represents the highest level of China's shipbuilding industry in the field of large-scale LNG-FSRU construction and demonstrates Hudong Zhonghua's strong technical reserves in the field of equipment in the international LNG industry chain. And advanced equipment development capabilities.
The completion of the ship is another achievement of the new model of manufacturing in China + financing services. It marks that China State Shipbuilding Corporation is a global leader in the field of high-end marine equipment R&D, design and construction, and has contributed China's strength to the global shipping green development strategy. Zhong Jian, Chairman of China Ship Leasing, delivered a speech at the ceremony. The godmother Ms. Wang Shun cut the rope for the new ship and gave a speech, naming it the "Transporter Spirit". The chairman of the company Chen Jianliang presented flowers to the godmother. Company Deputy General Manager Chi Benbin, LNG Chief Constructor He Jianghua, LNG Deputy Chief Constructor Zuo Dequan and other leaders with China Shipbuilding Leasing, DYNAGAS Site Supervision Team, ABS Classification Society, French GTT Company, Shanghai Zhouqiao Shipping Consulting Distinguished guests from Shanghai Branch of Industrial and Commercial Bank of China and Industrial and Commercial Bank of China attended the ceremony. LNG-FSRU is a high-tech, high-value-added, and high-risk "three-high product". It is a special equipment integrating LNG reception, storage, transfer, gasification, and export. It is called a large-scale offshore mobile LNG. Shore station. The "Transporter Spirit" was successfully developed and constructed, enriching the genealogy of China's LNG industry chain and achieving synchronization with the latest equipment in the international market. "Spirit of the Transporter" is provided by China Ship Leasing. It is the last ship of the two series tailored for the Greek Dynagas Company. Its total length is 294 meters, the width is 46.95 meters, and the main deck is 26.25 meters deep. The design draft is 11.6 meters, and the structural draft is 12. 5 meters, classified into American Bureau of Shipping (ABS). Hudong Zhonghua adopts the design concept of "green, environmental protection, low carbon and safety" and the most complete and optimal equipment configuration, endows it with good reliability, versatility, forward-looking and economical efficiency, and its comprehensive performance has reached the international advanced level. The ship is groundbreakingly equipped with a dual-fuel electric propulsion system, dual-fuel generators and dual-fuel regasification boilers. It runs in gas mode and can meet the current most stringent IMO Tier III emission requirements, reaching the third EEDI ahead of schedule. The stage standard is a typical environmentally friendly ship with very strong market adaptability and good market prospects. Realize the "two-in-one" of conventional sea trial and gas sea trial, creating a precedent in the industry. Hudong Zhonghua adheres to the concept of "innovation leads green safety", scientifically uses systematic engineering methods, and continuously improves the production and management system of the entire LNG industry chain, continuously shortens the construction period, improves the safety level, and saves resources and costs. On May 28 this year, Hudong-Zhonghua took the lead in successfully conducting the exploration and practice of the "two-in-one" trial on the world's first 23000TEU dual-fuel container ship "CMA CGM Sorbonne".
Hudong-Zhonghua then summarized and promoted it in time, making the "Transporter Spirit" the world's first large-scale LNG-FSRU to achieve the "two-in-one" trial. The "two-in-one" has succeeded in two different ship types, and has formed the "Hudong trial mode", which is expected to become a model and benchmark for global dual-fuel ship construction. At present, in the context of the energy transition, carbon awareness and environmental protection awareness will drive the increase in natural gas demand for a long time. As the only clean, low-carbon energy source among the three traditional fossil energy sources, natural gas has the advantages of safe use, high heating value, and cleanliness compared to coal and petroleum. Hudong Zhonghua and China Ship Leasing stated that they will continue to strengthen and deepen their cooperation, and jointly promote the influence, competitiveness and market share of China Shipbuilding Corporation in the global FSRU, LNG ship and other clean energy equipment and ship construction markets, and give play to each other's cleanliness The comprehensive advantages of the entire energy equipment industry chain provide customers with a one-stop solution for clean energy equipment represented by LNG.
