Date: 8th September 2020 | Time: 9 am (UTM+1)
Andrew’s session will cover how despite the latest IGC and IGF codes both requiring ships to be fitted with ESD systems that can be linked to a compatible shore system, there is an alarming lack of linked ESD system usage for LPG transfers - regardless of the almost universal adoption of ship / shore links during LNG transfers.
Andrew graduated with a B.Eng (hons) in Electronic Engineering from the University of Wales, Bangor and joined Trelleborg Marine and Infrastructure sixteen years ago as an electronics design engineer. Andrew has been involved in the development of the Universal Safety Link for LNG fueling and the latest integrated ‘Gen3’ SSL / ESDS systems, as well as Trelleborg’s SmartPort initiative. Andrew is an active participant in various industry bodies and has presented technical papers at various industry conferences. Since 2012 he has held the position of Technical Director.
Don’t miss out on his session happening on the 8th September, 9 AM UTC.
