Maritime Protection, a brand of global Survival Technology solutions provider Survitec, has secured an order for a set of nitrogen systems for installation on an LNG-powered cruise ship.
The company hailed the contract as significant and welcomed the opportunity to support the cruise industry with its transition to alternative fuels, in particular, to offer expertise on the implementation of IG (inert gas) systems as an important safety measure.
The scope of supply is for two nitrogen generators, feed-air compressors, valves, and control cabinets. Scheduled for delivery in 2025, the 51,950gt newbuild is the first cruise ship for this Japanese owner to be built in Europe. There is an option for a second vessel.
About ten LNG-fuelled cruise ships are currently in operation, with a further 25 set to join the global fleet over the next five years. Engines operating on LNG, ammonia, and methanol, in particular, require an N2 system for safety reasons.
Maritime Protection’s nitrogen systems are easy to install and fully automatic with PLC control. Furthermore, the system can be supported by the brand’s remote assistance offer, which enables support services, such as technical support and troubleshooting, to be delivered remotely.
