Two new dual-fuel-powered LNG carriers just handed over to Greek shipping company Dynagas by Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI)—the Arctic Aurora and the Yenisei River—are the first part of the latest and possibly clearest demonstration of the company’s intent to reach a cleaner environment through safe and efficient transportation of clean-burning liquid natural gas (LNG). Dynagas also will take delivery of five other LNG carriers over the next two years, all equipped with innovative and energy-efficient variable-speed electrical power and propulsion systems developed and constructed by GE’s Power Conversion business.

For each vessel, GE will supply a fully integrated power and propulsion package that includes a MV7000-series induction motor, alternator, converter, transformers and switchboard. Each package is fully tested on a real-time simulator (RTS) that creates conditions at sea at GE Power Conversion’s Power and Control Integration System Centre of Excellence (PCIS COE) in Belfort, France, before being shipped for installation by HHI at its shipyard in Ulsan, Korea.

“Dynagas recognizes its responsibilities to the industry to deliver its service in a safe, reliable and economically competitive manner,” Mr. Manos M. Migadis, new building project team manager at Dynagas says. He further says, “The goal of the company, the LNG shipping arm of the George Prokopiou group, is to grow in size and reputation and expand its ability to serve the industry.”

GE’s MV7000 drive technology delivers efficient and flexible control of electric power, which is some 30 percent more efficient than steam-based mechanical power and is now used across a broad range of applications and industries. The fully integrated package is backed up by a global team with technical expertise.
