Swedish organisations SSPA, FKAB, White Smoke and Swedish Marine Technology Forum have entered into a joint agreement with Korea’s KOGAS to evaluate the possibilities for developing a system in Korea for delivery of LNG to gas-fuelled ships. The group says that the order is an acknowledgement of the West Sweden industry cluster’s competence in developing technologies for, and assessing regulatory aspects associated with, using LNG as a ship fuel. The project will continue until April 2011 and will form a basis for further development of an LNG supply system in Korea.
The contract between the Swedish marine cluster and KOGAS is the first result of a joint study agreement between Business Region Göteborg and KOGAS that was signed July 2009. The purpose is to develop cooperation between Sweden and South Korea in the fields of biogas, natural gas and bioDME.
