ABS and DSME have formed a joint development project (JDP) to create a decarbonization strategy for DSME’s LNG carrier designs.
he project will see ABS and DSME investigate carbon emission performance of ships in various segments. Specialists from ABS’ Simulation Center in Singapore will simulate the performance of a range of decarbonization technologies.
The outcomes of the JDP will allow DSME to compare and select the best decarbonization options for each specific ship segment.
Our simulation center allows us to understand in rich detail how the various options play out at the fleet or individual vessel level. We are well positioned to support DSME with this exciting project
said Georgios Plevrakis, ABS Vice President, Global Sustainability.
Recently, DSME built an ‘Electrification Land Based Test Site (LBTS)’ within its own research complex, the Siheung R&D Campus, Gyeonggi-do, for the development of advanced eco-friendly and smart ship technologies.
The electric LBTS is designed to imitate the propulsion systems of real ships and ships and verify their performance. This facility, which is composed of a load simulator, a propulsion motor, a shaft generator motor, an energy storage system (ESS), and a controller, is expected to improve system efficiency through demonstration tests and greatly contribute to improving the maintenance efficiency of major equipment.
