Kongsberg Maritime has been chosen to supply automation solution and its fuel gas supply system (FGSS) for a newbuild 50,000-dwt LNG-fuelled bulk carrier, ordered by the South Korean shipowner, Ilshin Shipping Company. 

The vessel is being built by Hyundai Mipo Dockyard and is scheduled for delivery during the fourth quarter of 2017, Kongsberg said on Friday.

According to the company, it is the first dual-fuel merchant vessel to be built in South Korea, adding that it signifies the move towards LNG bunkering in the far east, driven by the lower cost of fuel and the need for more environmentally friendly vessel operation.

In addition to the FGSS solution, the delivery includes alarm, control system, propulsion control system, and various monitoring systems.
