    Wison multifunctional LNG Distributor granted AiP by DNV GL

    Wison Offshore & Marine (“Wison”) today announced that its innovative LNG Distributor (LNGD) design received Approval in Principle from DNV GL. A dedicated presenting ceremony was held today at Marintec China 2017. This AiP has been granted upon the validation of LNGD design with a specification of 10,000m³ storage capacity, the company said in its press release.
     
    Wison LNGD is a versatile LNG distribution vessel, designed to affordably deliver small LNG parcels to multiple locations. It is ideal for applications in milk run and regional LNG hub distribution. Since the product launch back in April, it has appealed strong interests from ship-owners, gas infrastructure companies and other potential end-users, who recognize the unique but practical combination of features this small-scale LNG solution exhibits. The market-ready product is capable of partial cargo delivery, quick turn-around at the terminal. Its superior maneuverability eliminates the need for tug assistance while shallow draft design enables better accessibility to waters than conventional LNG carriers. The ability to handle ISO containers is particularly attractive to market where onshore LNG trucking is in growing demand.
     
    Wison commits to providing much needed efficient infrastructure solutions to lower the hurdle for those who are eyeing investments in the small to medium scale LNG markets. Others in Wison’s small-scale LNG product line include bunkering vessel, small-scale LNGC, FSRU and FSRP. Mr. Tangquan MAN, Vice President at Wison Offshore & Marine who received the AiP on behalf of the company said, “This is truly wonderful first time cooperation with DNV who rendered us valuable support in the process. We are impressed with their technical know-how and profound interpretation of international standards. Our aim is to tap ‘last mile’ demand in global LNG market by facilitating penetration into smaller scale end markets where conventional marine logistics are unable to serve, and our LNGD concept is believed to be a tempting solution for such purpose.”
     
    As a leading international class society, DNV GL is rich in experience of classification and provision of technical advisories to maritime, LNG, and power industries. DNV GL Vice President and Regional Manager for Great China Torgeir Sterri said, "We are honored to cooperate with Wison Offshore and Marine and to present the AiP Certificate for this innovative LNG Distributor today. Congratulations to Wison! DNV GL is leading in the whole LNG value chain and we are happy to bring our global competence and expertise to serve our customers."
