Physical modeling and AI orchestrate the operational excellence of LNG carriers
LNG carriers transporting LNG are very complex physical systems, where the thermodynamic state of the cargo and its evaporation is closely coupled to the ship’s propulsion, the reliquefaction system (if the ship has one) and the conditions meteorological (wind, sea state, etc.).
Depending on the choice of piloting coupled with the weather, there is an impact on LNG consumption and therefore on the quantity unloaded on arrival.
To expand its smart shipping offer, GTT therefore wishes to provide shipowners with an operational assistance tool in order to optimize the overall consumption of the boat while respecting time constraints and quality of delivery. Thus, LNG losses on arrival are minimized.
What is smart shipping?
Smart shipping, or intelligent ship, is a concept that provides automated assistance to personnel on board or remotely using high-performance tools.
Development of an AI based on physical modeling, experimental data and operational reality to optimize cargo management and increase the environmental and economic performance of the ship.
