The FGSS consists of an LNG fuel tank, a gas supply unit, and a control device, among other elements,

This is also the first order of this system for high-pressure dual-fuel engines. Mitsubishi Shipbuilding says that after this, it will now get orders for both low-pressure and high-pressure engines.

Moreover, the MHI group’s company Imabari Shipbuilding will construct these six liquified natural gas-fueled car carriers.

The conversion of ships to LNG fuel is one solution to reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Thus, Mitsubishi says it will provide a wide range of FGSS to customers constructing LNG-fueled ships.

In addition, by helping to reduce GHG by popularizing these ships, they want to promote decarbonization in the maritime industry and strive to achieve carbon neutrality.
