Aqualis Offshore, part of Oslo-listed Aqualis, has been contracted by Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries to provide an engineering study of a newbuild LNG carrier for Teekay LNG.
Aqualis Offshore’s work scope is to provide failure modes and effects analysis (FMEA), hazard identification (HAZID) and hazard & operability (HAZOP) studies for the boil-off gas handling system and fuel gas system on board the vessel.
The offshore marine and engineering consultancy will also provide FMEA-studies of the vessel’s propulsion redundancy and steering system as well as ensure that electrical generation and distribution systems and associated control systems are designed such that a single fault will not result in the loss of ability to maintain cargo tank pressures.
Teekay LNG will utilize the LNG carrier to provide transportation services for BP Shipping’s LNG volumes from the Freeport LNG project located on Quintana Island near Freeport, Texas.
The value of the contract was not disclosed by Aqualis Offshore.
