An authorized representative from Germanisher Lloyd – Mr. Günter Demmig has recently visited API Marine headquarters in Aalborg, Denmark in connection with the Germanisher Lloyd certification of API Marine systems for project 4450.
As informed earlier, a series of tankers for project 4450 is currently being built at Volgograd Shipyard, on order by a Swedish ship-owner Svithoid Tankers AB. Chemical tankers of this project will be equipped with the three API Marine automation systems: integrated system for controlling technical equipment of the vessel – TSS/Control, system for controlling cargo operations -TSS/Cargo, and alarm system of cargo loading of 95/98% – TSS/Alarm. The software complex is represented by API Marine Masterload as integral part of the systems.
The process of verifying fulfillment of GL requirements consists of three stages: examination of the project documentation, functional tests of the systems at the production factory and delivery of the systems onboard of the vessel. Currently API Marine has successfully passed the second stage – the functional tests of API Marine systems for project 4450 were held at API Marine factory in Aalborg, Denmark.
