Kongsberg Supplies Custody Transfer System for LNG Carrier

Friday, May 09, 2008

Dapeng Sun, the first LNG carrier to be built in China was delivered to its owner in Shanghai at the beginning of April 2008, with Kongsberg Maritime's K-Gauge Custody Transfer System (CTS) onboard. The vessel, which has a capacity of 147,000 cubic meters or 70,000 tons, will partly replace foreign flagged vessels currently sailing from Australia to Guangdong
Province's Dapeng, China's first LNG receiving terminal. The delivery of Dapeng Sun represents a major milestone in China's shipbuilding history. An LNG vessel requires the highest level of
shipbuilding technology since LNG is such a difficult cargo to handle. Installation of the K-Gauge CTS commenced in May 2007 and was completed in October 2007 with the final SAT taking place in February 2008. K-Gauge automatically logs LNG tank levels, temperatures and pressure measurements, and calculates the tank volume during the loading-/unloading operation.
The system also generates a CTS loading-/unloading report; the official document used for purchasing the gas transported. The unique new K-Gauge flexible report system makes it easy to adapt the system for the changing requirements on the LNG spot market and/or changes in fixed long term SPA, by making it possible to change both the report layout format and the CTS
parameters.
