Design, Construction and Operation of LNG/LPG Vessels Conference
In Association with
29-30 November 2017, Glasgow, UK
The movement of liquefied gas by sea has been well established. LNG accounts for a significant part of the growth in the global energy supply and despite the recent economic situation the future demand for LNG/LPG carriers, floating storage, and processing systems is expected to increase.
While some companies are building larger, or faster, vessels to take advantage of economies of scale, others are looking at developing small vessels for shortsea and coastal trades to help create LNG distribution networks.
There is also a growing interest in floating production, storage and offloading systems for offshore field development and re-gasification systems and plants designed to avoid the need to construct land based processing and distribution centres.
A selection of papers to be presented at the conference includes:
- Ship Design Revisited – A Modern Approach for a Modern Era D. Scott, C. Tuzcu, Q. Gao, C. Pilia, P. McMullen, and G. Mermiris, Tritec Marine Ltd, UK
- LNG Bunkering Ships Carlos Guerrero, Bureau Veritas
- Small-Scale Transhipment, Distribution and Utilisation of LNG Keith W Hutchinson, Babcock International Group - Energy and Marine Technology, UK
- Driving Reliability, Efficiency and Safety on LNG/LPG Vessels Through Automation Høglund Marine Automation, Norway
- Jettyless Ship to Shore Transfer and Bunkering of LNG Jonathan Strachan, Houlder LTD, UK
- LNG Powered Dry Bulk Carrier A. Trakakis, Arista Shipping, Greece; D. Antonopoulos, Marine Solutions, Greece
- Innovative Tank for Small Scale LNG Bunker Vessels, Coastal Vessels, Fuel Tanks and Conversions Thomas Lamb, University of Michigan, USA; Regu Ramoo, ALTAIR Engineering, Inc., USA
