DNV has posted a new video explaining the basics of liquefied natural gas bunkering for ships.
The new video “takes a more technical approach to what is actually going on during the LNG bunkering operation,” the company says. It “describes the nine main steps undertaken by both ship and jetty crews to ensure a safe transfer of LNG.”
The video gives views of different types of bunkering, including truck-to-ship, shore-to-ship, and ship-to-ship transfer techniques.
Norway-based DNV – Det Norske Veritas – was founded in 1864 with an eye to safeguarding life, property and the environment. Today the firm has some 10,800 employees in an advisory businesses including ship and offshore oil and gas equipment classification and design. A maritime leader, DNV published rules on the safe construction and maintenance of LNG-fueled vessels 2000 – 12 years ago.
“Our business is in the safety of ships,” notes DNV North America Maritime business development director.
