South Korea’s Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering and Kongsberg Maritime of Norway have signed a joint development agreement for a new LNG FSRU regasification control system. 

As part of the delivery scope for a vessel currently under construction at the Okpo shipyard in South Korea, DSME will develop a high fidelity dynamic simulator for the regasification plant, the two companies said in a joint statement on Friday.

“The JDA, which was signed on 29th November 2016, enables DSME to utilise Kongsberg Maritime’s Dynamic Process Simulator ‘K-Spice’ and the ‘K-Chief’ automation and control system for the joint development of the vessel’s regasification control system,” the statement said.

DSME and Kongsberg Maritime are also in talks for possible cooperation on marketing activities of the FSRU regasification control system.
