Andrew Stafford, Technical Director at Trelleborg Marine Systems will present a technical paper discussing the latest in Ship-Shore Link (SSL) technology that has set the industry standard in large-scale LNG transfer for nearly 20 years.
The paper will provide an overview of the most recent work in respect of ship-shore links and communications. The LNG bunkering projects of Q-LNG will act as a case-in-point. The paper will review the alternative ship-shore link technologies available, and “lessons learned” from around the industry. It will also discuss how process safety is improved and training is facilitated by using fiber optic link technology with associated redundancy to ensure compatibility with ESD systems, telephony and cargo process data from any LNG fuelled vessels.
