Digital navigation, safety and optimisation solutions for LNG carriers

In this part of the Tech Talk series, Jeremy Crossman, General Manager, Sales Excellence & Coaching at Wärtsilä Marine Power, talks to three leading experts on navigation and bridge systems that can be applied to LNG carriers. Kay Dausendschoen, Head of Product - fleet operations and optimisation at Wärtsilä Voyage; Alexander Vehrenkamp, General Manager, Sales for navigation systems at Wärtsilä Voyage, and Captain Andre Kokura, HSSE superintendent with SCF Arctic projects, discuss how digital solutions can help improve safety, efficiency and sustainability in LNG carriers, even on the most challenging routes and icy conditions of the Arctic region.  

Captain Andre Kokura is an HSSE superintendent with SCF, the largest shipping company in Russia that operates more than 146 vessels. And over half of their fleet (83 vessels) are ice-class vessels, making them the largest operator of ice-class ships globally.  
 
Captain Kokura is responsible for the fleet’s safe navigation in the Arctic region’s icy conditions. “The company has been operating in the Russian Arctic since 2008, serving in major energy projects in the region such as Yamal LNG, Varandey, Prirazlomnoye, Novy Port. Our next big projects are Arctic LNG 2 and Obsky LNG. In terms of our long-term strategy, in 2015, SFC pioneered adopting LNG as a clean fuel. Now we have six Aframax type crude oil tankers powered by LNG. Five more vessels are under construction. We also have 18 Arc7 ice-class LNG carriers under construction,” informs the captain.
