A Green Milestone at Gastech 2023 in Singapore

In a groundbreaking development at Gastech 2023 in Singapore, Babcock’s LGE business, a global leader in liquefied gas solutions, achieved a significant environmental milestone by securing Approval in Principle (AiP) from the prestigious Classification Society Lloyd’s Register. This accolade recognizes the company’s innovative multi-fuel gas supply system, ecoFGSS-FLEX®, and its CO2 cargo handling system, ecoCO2®.

Revolutionizing Fuel Choice

The ecoFGSS-FLEX® system empowers ship owners with the flexibility to choose between two fuels, effectively lowering emissions across a wide range of vessel types through the use of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG). Building upon the success of the ecoFGSS® LPG fuel gas system, which already boasts 25 systems in order or in service, ecoFGSS-FLEX® is designed for the future, enabling the use of ammonia as a fuel when engine technology and global supply chains are ready. This innovation eliminates uncertainty, offering reassurance to investors and positively impacting the emission profile of the global fleet.

A Game-Changer in Carbon Capture

Babcock’s ecoCO2® cargo handling system received AiP from Lloyd’s Register, marking a significant step in Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage (CCUS) technology. This cutting-edge solution considers a range of critical parameters, including shipping profiles, terminal parameters, cargo composition, and volumes. It adheres to industry safety standards and environmental legislation, ensuring safe and efficient transportation of liquefied CO2. 

Liquefied Gas Solutions

Neale Campbell, Managing Director of Babcock’s LGE business, expressed his delight at receiving AiP for these innovative products. As leaders in liquefied gas solutions, Babcock’s commitment to environmentally friendly technologies shines through with ecoFGSS-FLEX® and ecoCO2®. These products have not only earned recognition from Lloyd’s Register but also hold the promise of rapid and efficient decarbonization in an ever-evolving market. The future of sustainable shipping is looking brighter with Babcock’s eco solutions leading the way.
