Multiple Hours | SunRui Ammonia Bunker Fuel System Receives LR and CCS AiP
SunRui Marine Environment Engineering Co., Ltd announced on Wednesday July 13 that it has received Certificates of Approval in Principle (AiP) from Lloyd’s Register (LR) and China Classification Society (CCS) classification societies for its fuel system at self-developed marine ammonia (AFSS).
At present, ammonia is widely regarded as one of the fuels with broad application prospects in the green and low-carbon transformation of the shipping industry.
“In this context, SunRui and LR signed a strategic cooperation agreement on technical cooperation in the application of clean marine energy such as ammonia fuel,” said SunRui, a subsidiary of China State Shipbuilding Corporation. (CSSC).
Through unremitting efforts, SunRui has developed AFSS with completely independent intellectual property rights.
The system is mainly composed of liquid ammonia bunkering unit, ammonia storage unit, heat exchange and supply unit, ammonia, a security and monitoring system, a control system and other units. The system can be used with MAN-ES ME-LGIA two-stroke ammonia engine and WinGD two-stroke ammonia engine.
Due to the toxicity and corrosion of ammonia fuel, LR, CCS and SunRui conducted a comprehensive risk assessment of AFSS during the certification period.
During the risk assessment, LR, CCS and SunRui identified potential security risks at each step. During this time, the corresponding protective measures will be discussed and the risks will be assessed to ensure the safety and reliability of the AFSS design.
“The successful development of AFSS and the main certification of LR and CCS indicates that SunRui has reached a new level in the field of ship clean power application,” said SunRui.
“Under the opportunity of global low-carbon environmental protection, SunRui will continue to provide customers with the most efficient and cost-effective marine environmental solutions and provide support and contribution to the green development of the global shipping industry.”
