    Hoglund to deliver key automation system for Seaspan LNG newbuilds

    September 23, 2022 - TradeArabia


      Hoglund Marine Solutions, a developer of advanced solutions for the shipping industry, is set to deliver integrated automation system (IAS), for three newbuild liquefied natural gas bunkering vessels (LNGBVs) to Seaspan, Canadian group primarily involved in coastal marine, transportation, bunker fuelling, ship repair and shipbuilding services.

      The IAS will seamlessly connect the cargo handling, control and electrical propulsion systems on each of the 7600 cu m ships for Seaspan, said the Norwegian company in a statement.

      Hoglund will leverage its experience from successfully developing automation systems on some of the first generation of LNGBVs, such as the MV Cardissa, an liquefied natural gas (LNG) bunkering vessel operating for Shell Western LNG, and the LNGBV Kairos.

      The company said a standard feature of all its automation systems, is Hoglund Playback, a vital solution for the crew, which has solved hundreds of incidents since its invention in 1995, on vessels all over the world.

      Using the integrated logging system, an operator can troubleshoot incidents by reviewing any alarms or events as if they were live data, giving them a highly detailed view of a potentially complex event, it stated.

      Hoglund pointed out that with this tool, the crew can check the historical data from an incident such as a blackout and see exactly what went wrong. This is essential for modern vessels such as LNGBVs, with sophisticated interconnected cargo handling, cargo transfer and fuel systems.

      Seafarers benefit through being able to identify the source of a system malfunction without having to spend time and money on bringing a specialist onto the ship.

      Each ship will feature emerging technologies that further reduce greenhouse gas and other emissions, as well as radiated noise.

      The LNG bunkering vessels, being designed by VARD Marine, will offer safe, efficient and economical refuelling for multiple ship types (ship-to-ship LNG bunkering), and allow for transfers to and from a wide range of terminals. They will also be able to perform coastal/short sea shipping operations.

      Vice President Sales Peter Morsbach said: "This is another bunker vessel application project, using our integrated solutions, for us to be involved in, highlighting the excellent reputation that Hoglund has throughout the maritime industry."

      "Hoglund will showcase the benefits of our advanced technology, while demonstrating Hoglund's expertise for fixing issues swiftly and supporting the yard during commissioning and installation - attributes that helped us to secure this contract," stated the top official.

      "Having pioneered automation and control solutions for some of the first-generation vessels in this segment, we are proud to support the continued development of LNG bunker vessels around the world," Morsbach added. -TradeArabia News Service
