ABS to Approve GE COGES System for New LNG Carrier Design

GE’s Marine Solutions and China’s Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding have received approval in principle (AIP) from the America Bureau of Shipping (ABS) for a jointly developed liquefied natural gas (LNG) carrier design to be powered by GE’s Combined Gas Turbine Electric and Steam (COGES) system.

The 178,000 cubic-meter LNG carrier design, which would feature a length of 290 meters and a width of 46,95 meters, would use “efficient, reliable and dual-fuel marine gas turbine,” said GE’s Brien Bolsinger, Vice President, Marine Operations.

“With AIP in hand from ABS, customers can now procure this LNG carrier that is capable of meeting Tier III International Maritime Organization and Tier 4 United States Environmental Protection Agency emissions requirements today,” Bolsinger added.

The COGES system will feature one GE LM2500-family gas turbine generator, one heat recovery steam generator (HRSG) and one steam turbine generator.

The LM2500-family gas turbine used in GE’s COGES system is derived from GE’s proven CF6 aircraft engines.
