Yokogawa to Supply Control System for Ichthys LNG Carrier

Yokogawa Electric Corporation announced that it has received an order from Kawasaki Heavy Industries to supply the control system for an LNG carrier that is being built for the Ichthys LNG project in Australia.

The ship will be the world’s largest Moss-type LNG carrier and will be used for transporting LNG from an onshore LNG processing plant that is being constructed as part of the Ichthys LNG project. The ship is scheduled to enter service by the end of 2016, in time for the completion of the plant. The ship is also the first Moss-type LNG carrier equipped with a dual fuel diesel engine (DFDE), which burns both fuel oil and gas.

Yokogawa will deliver the CENTUM® VP integrated production control system for monitoring and controlling the LNG carrier’s LNG tanks and loading/unloading facilities as well as the supply of gas to the DFDE and the supply of power to other driving units. Yokogawa will also be responsible for the engineering and commissioning of the control system.

Yokogawa believes that the following factors were key considerations in the decision to give it this order:

  • The company has already delivered control systems for other DFDE ships.
  • The company has a global service network, ensuring that vessels can undergo maintenance at any LNG port.

Yokogawa won the control systems order for other Ichthys LNG project facilities in 2012. These include the onshore LNG processing plant, offshore production/process facilities, and the floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel. With this contract, the CENTUM VP system will cover all project facilities, from production to LNG transport.
