Korean shipbuilders have achieved a market-leading role in the construction of LNG tankers. Following commitment to serve this market with products, Kongsberg Maritime Ship Systems (KMSS) has received a breakthrough success by receiving firm orders for its Bridgeline, Integrated Navigation System, to be fitted to seven of the new LNG tankers, with options for further deliveries in the future. KMSS will provide Radar/ARPA, ECDIS- electronic chart display system, MBB- voyage data recorder, UAIS- universal automatic identification system with full integration of the navigation instruments. The Bridgeline assembly will be carried out in Korea. The orders have been placed by the three major Korean shipyards; Hyundai, Samsung and Daewoo for tanker operators; Shell Tankers (UK), BP Amoco (UK) ALSOC (Australia), Bergesen (Norway), Osprey x 2 (Singapore) and SK Shipping (Korea). In addition to these key LNG tanker orders, KMSS also received contracts for BridgeLine to two other large LPG tankers from Hyundai, to be operated by CMM (Greece) in addition to two shuttle tankers from Samsung for Interocean Ugland Management.
