The EU co-funded project, titled Spanish/French Sustainable Atlantic Motorways of the seas Using as fuel for Engine LNG, or S/F SamueLNG for short, is in its final stage, Central Dredging Association (CEDA) said in their latest release. 

The project S/F SamueLNG aims to accelerate the infrastructure that will enable the implementation of LNG as a marine fuel, and focuses on the Atlantic Corridor as one of the most important shipping routes of the European Union.

The two main objectives of the project are the preliminary studies, which will lead to the development of innovative solutions for an LNG supply chain in several ports in the region, and the LNG retrofit of the 8,500m3 trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD) Samuel de Champlain,” CEDA stated.

The results of the project will be discussed in a one-day conference in Saint-Nazaire, France, where the retrofitted Samuel de Champlain will be doing trials. The conference will start at 12:00am on the 18th of September and will end at 12:00am the next day, said CEDA.

In the first half of the conference the main challenges and results of the project will be presented and discussed, including topics such as:

  • The role of LNG as an alternative marine fuel;
  • The LNG retrofit of DP’s Samuel de Champlain – an 8,500m3 Trailing Suction Hopper Dredger – from Marine Gas Oil to a dual-source fuel engine system;
  • LNG bunkering studies, including: a risk assessment and mobile bunkering solutions for smaller ports;
  • Environmental Impact Assessment studies.

During the event, delegates will have the opportunity to visit the retrofitted Samuel de Champlain and to get up-close-and-personnel with experts involved in the reconstruction and the operation of the dual-fuel dredger.
