DSME Develops the Biggest LNG Cargo Tank

DSME succeeded in developing the worlds biggest LNG cargo tank for LNG carriers or LNG-FPSOs. The cargo tank which is named ACT-IB (Aluminum Cargo Tank - Independent type B) is the worlds biggest LNG cargo tank ever developed in the world. The company plans to apply the new cargo tank technology to LNG-FPSO (LNG Floating Production Storage and Offloading) which is expected to achieve production of 2 million tons of LNG per a year. The size of the cargo tank has a storing capacity of 210,000m of LNG, which is nearly three times the size of the existing independent type of cargo tank. Most shipbuilders dont have the capacity to conby utilizing the latest technology for building LNG carriers and LNG-FPSOs. Thanks to expertise in LNG production, DSME has become one of the foremost leaders in the worlds shipbuilding industry. DSMEs LNG vessels, with the proven reliability of the membrane type LNG cargo containment system, boast low construction costs, less fuel consumption, and operate at higher speeds than other ships of the same class.

struct cargo tanks this size, which means DSMEs competitiveness in the industry is continuing to grow. DSME expects to strengthen their global competitiveness in this field

DSME Developed CMMS for Vessels

DSME successfully developed a powerful and flexible computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) that will be soone implemented industrywide. The previous ship maintenance system (SMS) provided simple management reports and material procurement data. But this system allows ship owners to control maintenance over all vessel facilities, maintainable equipment, and material procurement management information from acquisition to disposal. The system is thoroughly integrated. It also provides a wealth of information related to outfitting equipment and hull so ship owners can track maintenance work and analyze recorded data in order

to manage work flow on a vessel. Two key functions of this system are monitoring environmental safety using a USN system, and real-time monitoring of equipment conditions using an AMS system. The system will be linked by satellite which can then be remotely controlled by the head office, as well as real time information sharing and video conferencing. This system is especially meaningful because it allows ship owners to reduce costs, increase operational efficiency, and integrate facility management with new and existing IT technologies. Recently, DSME successfully conducted a performance test of the CMMS on a containership and plans to fully install the system on the vessel this year.
