Gas Turbine Electric and Steam (COGES) system. “With AIP in hand from ABS, customers can now pro- cure this LNG carrier that is capable of meeting Tier III
International Maritime Organization and Tier 4 United
States Environmental Protection Agency emissions requirements today,” said GE’s Brien Bolsinger, Vice
President, Marine Operations. “Thanks to the compact and lightweight attributes of GE’s COGES arrange- ment, customers can realize an additional 4,000 cu. m. of LNG cargo space versus a traditional 174,000-cu. m.
LNG carrier powered by dual fuel diesel engines,” said
HZ President Chen Jun. “Also, since the GE gas turbine is dual fuel capable, it can operate either on the carrier’s cargo of boil off gas or on marine gas oil to provide for all power and propulsion.” “New technologies and innovations are essential in- gredients for sustainable growth of the marine industry and protection of our natural environment,” said Bill
Shi, ABS Vice President of Engineering, Greater China
Division. “By evaluating this new design concept joint- ly developed by Hudong-Zhonghua and GE and grant- ing this milestone AIP, we have acknowledged that the eco-friendly propulsion system is in compliance in www.marinelink.com 65
