DSME and Kongsberg Maritime have signed a Joint Development Agreement (JDA) for a new LNG FSRU regasification control system. As part of the delivery scope for a vessel currently under construction at the Okpo shipyard in South Korea, DSME will develop a High Fidelity Dynamic Simulator for the regasification plant. The JDA, which was signed on 29th November 2016, enables DSME to utilise Kongsberg Maritime’s Dynamic Process Simulator “K-Spice” and the “K-Chief” automation and control system for the joint development of the vessel’s regasification control system.

Both parties have extensive experience in the field of LNG vessel control systems. DSME is fast approaching delivery of 100 LNG ships, many of them operating with Kongsberg Maritime’s LNG control system on board. In total Kongsberg Maritime’s rapidly expanding LNG vessel reference list now surpasses 200 LNG control system installations. During the company’s long-standing partnership in the LNG business, several different concepts for gas handling have been developed. Simulation studies are today established as increasingly important in this field of development, to ensure robust design and to verify design parameters.

“We are very pleased to start a LNG control system JDA with DSME as it represents a continuation and strengthening of a long term and very successful partnership,” says Tore Wean, Managing Director, Kongsberg Maritime Korea. “We have supplied ship automation systems to DSME since the 1980’s and LNG ship control systems since 2002. We are committed to supporting their technology needs today and in the future.”

Vice President at DSME Naval & Energy System R&D, Mr. Young Bok Choi adds, “Entering this JDA with Kongsberg Maritime as a major partner, and to many shipping companies, a trusted supplier makes good sense for DSME. We believe it will be a very significant stepping stone for further development projects and together we can provide our customers with world leading technology solutions.”

Further to the signing of the JDA, DSME and Kongsberg Maritime are in further discussions for possible cooperation on marketing activities of the new LNG FSRU regasification control system.
