Alfa Laval signs patent deal with DSME

Alfa Laval said it has entered into a patent licence agreement with Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering for the use of DSME’s patents on high pressure fuel gas supply systems.

The agreement enables Alfa Laval to further develop the Alfa Laval Fuel Conditioning Modules for use with high pressure gas injection engine technology from MAN Diesel & Turbo, the company informed in a statement.

Under the terms of the agreement, Alfa Laval will use DSME patents with Alfa Laval Fuel Conditioning Modules for use on natural gas-powered ships, such as LNG carriers. The agreement also paves the way for Alfa Laval to adapt its fuel conditioning systems using DSME technology in order to use LNG as secondary or tertiary fuels aboard commercial ships of the future.

In its strategy to support the use of LNG fuels with sound next-generation technology, Alfa Laval acquired in December 2014 CorHex, the Korean-based manufacturer of compact printed circuit heat exchangers (PCHEs). These diffusion-bonded compact heat exchangers are excellent for, among other things, high-pressure LNG fuel gas applications, Alfa Laval added.
