RINA plays key role in world’s first marine CNG project

Worlds first marine Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) project International classification society and verification group RINA has been appointed by Indonesia's electricity utility PT PLN (Persero) to help develop the world's first marine Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) project. The project,which is expected to deliver the first gas in 2013, is to transport between 3 and 6 thousand standard cubic feet (mscf) per day of CNG from the Indonesian island of Gresik to another Indonesian island, Lombok, where it will feed the Peaking power plant.RINA has already delivered the feasibility study, and is now developing the Front End Engineering Design (FEED). This will be followed by support during tendering, and the provision of project management support during the Engineering Procurement and Construction (EPC) phase. Tendering will open in May 2012 and a number of different technologies are being considered.This is a pilot project which will allow the use of cheaper natural gas in place of liquid fuel for power production. If the pilot project succeeds, the marine CNG technology will be applied to other power plants across the country with similar or larger capacity. PLN has mapped out potential utilisation of CNG in Indonesia. CNG will come from low-capacity gas wells, marginal ...

His resignation is likely to be the first of many from high-level people connected to the incident President of RINA, the Italian classification society that certified the Costa Concordia for seaworthiness and safety, Gianni Scerni resigned Tuesday amid controversy over comments he allegedly made to the Italian media.

Going so close to the coast is a sailor bravado, but it can not be done by those who lead a ship of that size."Scerni is then ...
