GL and IHIMU team up to develop LNG fuel ship

Although LNG has been proven to be a marine marine fuel, what about the main engine fuel for a global trade container ship? In order to develop a large LNG fuel container ship solution, German Lloyd's Register (GL) and IHI Marine Joint Co., Ltd. (IHIMU) signed a joint development project (JDP) agreement.
GL and IHIMU will jointly develop a 13,000 TEU container ship fuelled by LNG. According to Dr. Pierre C. Sames, Senior President and Director of Strategic R&D of Lloyd's Register of Shipping, “IHIMU shares the vision of GL, LNG will become a challenge for the maritime industry to reduce its emissions to the air and reduce its impact on global climate change. fuel."
IHIMU first launched the eFuture 13000C container ship in 2010. At that time, GL evaluated the ship's main hull structure. The newly signed joint development project will focus on the LNG fuel system. The system consists of a fuel oil storage station, oil tanks, and gas preparation. IHIMU will design key structures based on design assessments, hazard identification, etc. provided by GL and implement design certification in principle when successful R&D projects are completed. The safety assessment of the gas supply system will be the key to the GL-promoting project.

Engineering Plastics (80-160℃)

The definition and classification of engineering plastics is a specific name.Engineering plastics broadly refers to plastic which has high performance and may replace metal materials.The narrow sense refers to the strength and heat resistance of plastic (PE, PP, PVC, ABS, etc.), which can be used as a structural material for industrial use and has the functional structure of high performance plastic

Plastic can be divided into two main categories: thermoplastic (after heating and melting) and thermosetting (after heating and turning into a three-dimensional structure).Engineering plastics can also be divided into special engineering plastics and standardengineering plastics.

The so-called engineering plastics plastics often refer to thermoplastic polyamide (PA plastics).Polyoxymethylene (POM plastics), polycarbonate (PC plastics) and so on , and special engineering plastics often refers to other than the above five kinds of more excellent performance engineering plastics.According to the using temperature points, generally use temperature at 150 ℃.The following is a standard engineering plastics (generally is 100 ℃--150 ℃), more than 150 ℃ for special engineering plastics, special engineering plastics is divided into 150 --250 ℃ class (including the standardengineering plastic compounds) and above 250 ℃.The higher the temperature, the higher the price.

Characteristics of engineering plastics(compared with metal materials):


(a) small proportion: 1.0 -- 2.0, about one sixth of iron, reducing the weight effect;

(b) good processing and high production efficiency;

(c) water resistance and chemical corrosion;

(d) the friction coefficient

(e) can be colored freely;

(f) easy to compound with Glass Fiber and various filler;

(g) excellent electrical insulation;

(h) excellent heat insulation, with thermal conductivity of about 1% of iron and less than two thousandths of copper;

(I) reduce costs, save resources and energy.


(a) low heat resistance and low softening point;

(b) the mechanical strength is low and the tensile strength is generally about one-tenth of the steel;

(c) the dimension stability is poor and the linear expansion coefficient is about five times that of steel;

(d) poor durability. Prolonged exposure to gravity is susceptible to fatigue, and prolonged exposure to ultraviolet radiation is associated with lower performance.

3. Application of engineering plastics

(a)One is the functional components of strength, drug resistance, abrasion resistance and other requirements.The other is mechanical parts with shrinkage, dimension accuracy and appearance.Generally speaking: the former is crystalline engineering plastics, the latter is non-crystalline engineering plastics.The practical application often requires the performance of both.Engineering plastics with glass fiber (GF) or carbon fiber (CF) are more suitable for such requirements.

(b). More than half of the applications in engineering plastics are automotive and electronic, while the main use of standard plastics is extrusion molding (51%) and non-industrial products (21%).
