LR presents Babcock’s LGE business with an AiP for ecoCO2

Babcock’s LGE business, specialising in liquefied gas solutions, has received approval in principle (AiP) from Lloyd’s Register (LR) for its multi-fuel gas supply and CO2 cargo handling systems, ecoFGSS-FLEX and ecoCO2.

The new ecoFGSS-FLEX system is based on Babcock’s pre-existing ecoFGSS LPG fuel gas system. The fundamentals of both systems are the same. However, the new, larger eco-FGSS-FLEX system enables the use of ammonia as a fuel for future application when engine technology and global supply chains are established, with minimal or no disruption to the fuel gas supply system.

Both systems allow operators to use one of two different fuel types on a broad range of vessels. This will allow shipowners to reduce the emissions from their fleets.

Babcock’s ecoCO2 CO2 cargo handling system is designed for the full carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) value chain.

The system accounts for a range of operating parameters including shipping profiles, loading and discharge terminal parameters, cargo composition and cargo volumes.

“The solutions offered by Babcock’s LGE business matter more now than ever and in ecoFGSS-FLEX, we have a product which will allow shipowners to decarbonise quickly and efficiently in an ever-changing and complex market,” says Neale Campbell, managing director of Babcock’s LGE business.

“With ecoCO2, we have a product which has been designed using tried and tested equipment and adheres to industry safety standards and environmental legislation,” he adds.
