The latest introduction of the ME-GI to the marine market has been very much supported by the Korean shipyards and engine builders, Doosan, Hyundai, Samsung and Daewoo. Due to this co-operation it has been possible to introduce the ME-GI engines to the latest design of LNG carriers and get full acceptance from the Classification Societies involved.

This paper describes the innovative design and installation features of the fuel gas supply system for an LNG carrier, comprising multi-stage low temperature boil-off fuel gas compressor with driver and auxiliary systems, high-pressure piping system and safety features, controls and instrumentation. The paper also extensively describes the operational control system required to provide full engine availability over the entire transport cycle.
