The Evolution system and its previous generations have been installed on over 260 ships worldwide and has been supplied to Hyundai for over 12 yr. The system can be configured to any number of engines and multiple gases. The Evolution monitor over 800 marine engines and have over 5 MM operating hours of experience.
The 114,000 DWT Ice-class IA aframax tankers, measuring 250 meters in length, 44 meters in width and 21 meters in height, are scheduled to be delivered from the third quarter of 2018 and to be chartered to Shell.
The order for the four vessels is valued at $240 MM, and speaking about the order of the LNG-fueled aframax tankers, an HHI official added that the company intends to grab more orders for similar vessels.
To enable IMO Tier III compliance on liquid fuel operating mode, the contract also specifies the supply of low-pressure selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system. The Evolution emissions monitoring system will then monitor the emissions and thus the efficacy of the SCR through analysis of NOx, SOx and CO2 using state-of-the-art, proven infra-red analyzers.
The ongoing development of shale gas resources in the US has spurred infrastructure construction for both natural gas processing capacity and LNG export terminals.
Russian natural gas monopoly Gazprom is strengthening its presence in the gas market of the Middle East through the planned construction of an 11-metric-MMtpy–12-metric-MMtpy LNG plant in Iran.
