Siport21 will develop, together with Gasnam, Naturgy, Cotenaval and ESK, SiBunker. This is an LNG bunkering operations conceptual simulator.
his software will be based on operation procedures and availability indicators. The project has been selected by the Spanish Department of Trade and Industry in a call for Innovative Business Groups.
SiBunker will be developed in 10 months and has a budget of up to 120 thousand euros. This tool aims to help decision making related to LNG bunkering operations according to regulation and operation parameters:
- Ship mooring conditions;
- Metocean operation limits;
- Risk assessment;
- Maritime traffic interferences;
This simulator allows improving safety in the operations based on a previous specific risk assessment and will enable decision-making both in nautical and process aspects.
SiBunker is also designed as a learning and training tool for all players in the gas value chain.
Siport21 will develop the operation procedures and program the conceptual simulator based on their experience in LNG bunkering projects.
