Cryonorm to supply LNG fuel system for French dredger

Samuel de Champlain

Dutch maker of cryogenic equipment, Cryonorm signed contracts with Damen Shiprepair Dunkirk to supply its liquefied natural gas (LNG) fuel system for the 117m-long, 8500-cbm trailing suction hopper dredger Samuel de Champlain.

Damen Shiprepair & Conversion, part of the Dutch shipbuilding giant Damen, announced last week it will undertake the conversion of the French dredger to dual-fuel capability combining LNG and marine gas oil (MGO).

Damen claims this would be the first conversion of a dredger to LNG as fuel.

Cryonorm said in a statement on Monday it will engineer, produce and supply the LNG fuel system to be installed on the Samuel de Champlain.

The contract includes pre-fabricated dual 170-cbm LNG tank system holding all required gas handling equipment, port and starboard side bunker stations and the control system.

The conversion operation itself will last three and a half months, from September 2018 onwards in Dunkirk, one of Damen’s French shipyards, Cryonorm said.
