BMS focusing on LNG technology at SMM

Efficiency and sustainability will be among the top issues at SMM 2014 in Hamburg, and one of the company presenting their products such as the Becker Mewis Duct®, Becker Twisted Fin® and the new LNG Hybrid Barge, will be Becker Marine Systems.

From September 9,h to 12,h 2014 at the SMM, Becker Marine Systems specialized in high performance rudder systems will be introducing product innovations featuring a convincingly successful interaction of economical and environmental factors.

Among the presented products is a variety of solutions for using low-emission Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) as the fuel in the shipping industry.

“We have developed special drive systems for this and are happy to be presenting our LNG Hybrid Barge at SMM,” said Henning Kuhlmann, Becker Marine Systems’ Managing Director.  “It works like a floating power station and can supply energy to cruise ships in an environmentally-friendly way.”

LNG Hybrid Barge will arrive at the port of Hamburg to perform the first energy transfer to a cruise ship in October for the first time.

In addition, Becker Marine Systems will be presenting the LNG PowerPac, an LNG-powered generator for ships in port operations.

“We want to establish LNG as a fuel for ship propulsion systems. That’s why, for example, we have initiated projects with a variety of suppliers, shipping companies and ports for LNG storage, the least expensive way to rebuild engines and the provision of gas-related logistics,” said Dirk Lehmann, Becker Marine Systems Managing Director.

At a press conference being held at the SMM, Becker Marine Systems will be providing information on its product innovations. It is scheduled to take place at 10:30 am on September 11th 2014 at the Becker Marine Systems stand (Hall A1, Stand A 1.221).
