On January 7, China State Shipbuilding Corporation 711 Institute obtained the Approval of Principle (AiP) certificate for marine LNG bunkering system issued by DNV Classification Society. Chen Keng, global vice president of DNV Classification Society, issued a certificate to He Zhijian, deputy director of the 711 Institute. Etemad Hamid, a gas expert from the DNV China Technology Center, Wu Tong, General manager of the Heat Engine Division of the 711 Institute, and Wang Xiaowu, Deputy general manager, attended the award ceremony. 711 Institute is the first unit in China to obtain this certificate, indicating that 711 Institute has the ability to provide LNG bunkering systems to LNG ships.

The marine LNG bunkering system developed by the Heat Engine Division of the 711 Institute is the first marine bunkering system with completely independent intellectual property rights in China. The system can effectively ensure the safety and efficiency of ship-to-ship LNG filling by setting low-temperature flexible composite hoses, emergency release devices, dry quick joints, ship distance monitoring, and anti-fall systems.

During the certification process, DNV experts conducted multiple rounds of review on the technological process, safety protection measures, control, and monitoring of the filling system, and believed that the system fully met the relevant requirements of DNV, and approved the system in principle.

Subsequently, the two parties conducted in-depth exchanges on the development and certification of key equipment for marine LNG bunkering systems, as well as marine methanol fuel supply systems and marine reliquefaction systems. Carry out in-depth cooperation in providing advanced and applicable products and customized services.
