The LPG Fuel Supply System (LFSS) is an innovative and reliable system that enables the use of LPG as fuel and therefore increases operational efficiency and support environmental sustainability to the market. The use of LPG as marine fuel is likely to increase in the future, and might be another step towards a greener society. The Wärtsilä LFSS is designed to be robust and reliable, even under the difficult maritime conditions.
The system is configured with LPG storage tank(s) optimized for the trade of the vessel. The LPG fuel tank(s) is loaded through dedicated bunkering lines, or in case of a LPG carrier reloaded from the cargo tanks. From the fuel tank(s), the LPG is conditioned and prepared as fuel. A system consisting of pumps and heat exchanger is used to supply the engine with a stable and reliable fuel flow, at the correct pressure and temperature. The LFSS is equipped with proven components, including the necessary return gas conditioning system. Due to need for high cleanness on the fuel there are installed proper filtering upstream and embedded in the system.
LFSS are installed on VLGC`s and MGC`s, ie. ships mainly carrying LPG but also able to trade with Ammonia as cargo. The LFSS are installed both on new-buildings and as retrofits onboard (5 – 10) years old gas carriers.
