Trelleborg Marine and Infrastructure will deliver marine fender systems, docking and mooring equipment, and Ship-Shore Links for PetroVietnam Gas’ Thi Vai LNG Terminal in Vietnam.
As part of the agreement, Trelleborg will provide four sets of its Super Cone Fenders (SCN), the latest generation of fenders. The conical body shape makes the SCN very stable even at large compression angles, and provides excellent shear strength, the manufacturer said. The overload stops inside the fender make it even more resistant to over compression.
Trelleborg will also supply a selection of docking and mooring equipment. This includes its Quick Release Hooks (QRH), the foundation for today’s modern mooring systems; its Load Monitoring System, which measures and displays critical mooring line tensions; and its Docking Aid System, which increases situational awareness, providing vital information such as distances, angles, and speeds to pilots and jetty operators to ensure the vessel is safely docked. At the same time, its Ship-Shore Link system supports LNG carrier loading and cargo discharge. Additionally, the terminal will utilize Trelleborg’s Environmental Monitoring System which provides weather, tide, current and wave information to the staff at the berth, at the operations center, or to the vessel.
PV GAS Project Management Company at PetroVietnam Gas, commented, “Located in the southern province of Ba Ria Vung Tau, when operational, the terminal will boast the capacity of one million tonnes per year in 2022, and three million tonnes per year in the second phase of development. In order to safeguard the traffic of LNG carriers supplying international routes, it was vital that we upgraded the terminal with an integrated berthing system that successfully meets international LNG operation safety and quality specifications and standards.”
