GTT, Cryovision Install SloShield on GasLog Singapore
GTT, the world leader in the design of membrane containment systems for the maritime transportation and storage of LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas), announces that it has completed, with its partner Cryovision, the first installation of its innovative sloshing monitoring system, SloShield. The SloShield solution was designed to monitor impacts caused by sloshing of the liquid cargo. It provides the crew with real time information. As part of a cooperation agreement signed with the ship-owner GasLog Ltd., the LNG carrier GasLog Singapore is the first ship to be equipped with this system which can lead to an optimization of the ship's operations.
The cooperation agreement includes an initial phase of observation aimed at demonstrating the SloShield performance accompanied by crew training. In addition, based on further data provided by Gaslog, GTT's teams will study the relationship between sloshing and the boil-off rate in the tanks. This relationship between these two phenomena are highlighted key topic for ship-owners but have not previously been investigated in an in-depth study based on actual data.
About the agreement, Philippe Berterottière, Chairman and CEO of GTT said: "We are very pleased to cooperate with GasLog, a global leader in the LNG shipping industry, who owns a large fleet equipped with GTT technologies. This agreement also illustrates the importance we place on serving the LNG transportation industry in its operations with a large service offer".
Theodoros Katemidis, General Manager of Newbuilding Technology and Projects of GasLog also commented: "Innovation is one of GasLog's core values and we constantly look to improve the performance of our vessels through new technology. The installation of SloShield on the GasLog Singapore illustrates our desire to continuously monitor and improve our onboard systems. We believe this will further optimize the operations of our vessels and lead to improved efficiencies for GasLog and our customers going forwards."
