DNVGL Perfect ship
At the Nor-Shipping trade fair in Oslo today, project partners ABB, OMT, GTT, Caterpillar’s Solar Turbines, CMA CGM, its subsidiary CMA Ships, and DNV GL, presented the PERFECt joint industry project (JIP).
The PERFECt JIP examined the potential of developing an electric-driven 20,000 TEU ultra large container vessel (ULCV) with an LNG-fuelled combined cycle gas and steam turbine (COGES) electric power plant.
The goals for the project were to utilize LNG as a primary fuel for an ultra-low emissions profile, in a design with at least the same carrying capacity and efficiency as existing ULCVs.
The use of a highly efficient combined gas and electric steam turbine (COGES) system, in combination with an all-electric design, offered exceptional performance with several advantages. Propelling the ship with electrical motors enabled the power generation and propulsion systems to be placed in separate sections of the ship… Read More
