European patent for high pressure LNG fuel gas systems received

16 Mar 2016

TGE Marine is pleased to announce that a European patent under the number WO 2013/170964 A1 with the title: “Device for Supplying Gas” has been granted, while patent applications are pending in several other countries. The engineering team of TGE has closely cooperated with TH Köln and especially with Prof. Dr. Rainer Scheuring on the development of a control system which can cope with high speed load profiles imposed by 2-stroke dual fuel main engines while running on LNG as primary fuel.
Meanwhile the control system has been comprehensively tested on board of the world’s largest Qmax LNG-carrier “Rasheeda” and worked perfectly even under different profiles with two main engines in operation.
TGE Marine’s CEO, Manfred Küver, commented: “We are pleased that our cooperation with TH Köln has resulted in a robust industrial control system for high pressure LNG fuel gas systems and that an international patent has been granted. We believe that LNG will play a major role in the future as a fuel for marine applications considering 25% of CO2 and 85% of NOx reduction compared to HFO and the implementation of environmental control areas in more parts of the world.”
