DSME independently develops LNG cargo holds
Friday, October 27, 2017, 13:42:50 Paul Yoon ckyoon7@paran.com
DSME has successfully developed LNG cargo holds of best performance, using its own technologies. DSME unveiled on Dec. 26 that it has successfully developed its own LNG cargo holds named ‘SOLIDUS’ with the lowest natural evaporation rate among the existing LNG cargo holds in the world. DSME has earned recognition of its high technological levels particularly from LR of UK with general approval on hold plans.

SOLIDUS is a membrane-type LNG cargo hold of next generation with safety maximized and developed by DSME in technical collaboration with BASF, a German-based chemist, using double metal barriers of insulation, eco-friendly and of high performance. As a result, the LNG evaporation rate of 0.07% in the existing cargo holds is estimated to be lowered to 0.05%. The lowering difference can annually save about KW500 million worth LNG.

DSME holds the world’s top-notch technology in the field of LNG cargo holds using SOLIDUS by actively controlling evaporation. Also, the system is considered outperforming the incumbent ones, simplifying the link between the first insulating wall and the second insulating one, which reduces required number of parts and cost.

Notably, in relation with the development of SOLIDUS, the maximum use of domestic LNG-related machinery manufacturers is expected to be a big contributor to its localization at home.
