Alistair Traylen, Chief Systems Architect, Docking and Mooring Group
At the end of June, I’ll be speaking about developments in the ship-to-ship approach and berthing systems for FLNG at the FLNG World Congress in Singapore.
My presentation will form part of Stream D at the congress, covering ‘Flexible Technology Applications for Cost-Effective FLNG Operations’, and I’ll be discussing technologies, developments and the integration of the ship-to-ship approach and berthing systems, and how they are applicable in the FLNG market.
There are a number of complexities introduced to approach and berthing in ship-to-ship operations, and further arise in the LNG arena. As the FLNG market grows, docking and mooring technology and systems integration need to evolve rapidly to keep up with it.
In particular, I’ll talk about the complexities of banked mooring in terms of berthing and position monitoring, and how they affect the relative positioning requirements for FLNG ship-to-ship berthing. I will also outline considerations for specifying and evaluating ship-to-ship berthing systems.
I’ll leave you with some words from our President, Richard Hepworth, about why this rapidly evolving industry is so important to us, and I hope to see you at the congress!
“Trelleborg is a world leader in the design and manufacture of advanced systems for LNG applications, but we know that we need to continue to innovate to remain in this position. One of the most valuable ways for us to inform about our developments is through peer-to-peer dialogue, which is just one of the reasons why we feel events like the FLNG World Congress are so important.”
