Case: The Samsoe ferry, Denmark
The Samsoe ferry runs on LNG and has been doing so since 2015
Just like all other types of mechanics, the bunkering solution needs regular service and maintenance to ensure a high performance. And with a 5-year service agreement from MAKEEN Energy's division for liquefied natural gas (LNG) solutions, the shipowner can leave the worries behind.
The customer’s challenge
The ferry's bunkering solution needs regular service and maintenance to keep up performance.
With a 5-year service contract – including 6 service visits annually – the bunkering solution gets the care and repair it needs to run as smoothly as possible.
The shipowner does not need to worry about the state of repair of the equipment, as MAKEEN Energy's service technicians handle the regular service and maintenance.
MAKEEN Energy delivered the turnkey bunkering solution that makes it easy and fast to refuel the Samsoe ferry with the cold, liquid gas. Naturally, the shipowner wants the bunkering operations to continue running as smoothly and efficiently as possible. Therefore, they placed a 5-year service contract with MAKEEN Energy.
All-round service agreement for LNG bunkering
With the service agreement, the shipowner ensures that their bunkering solution gets the service and maintenance it needs. And that is a vital foundation to keep the ferry running.
The agreement includes 6 service visits annually. Every time, the service technicians from MAKEEN Energy perform a wide range of checks and tests of the bunkering solution, and, among other things, they:
- Inspect the bunkering installation and the area around it
- Perform a function control of all components
- Clean and lubricate couplings
- Carry out minor repairs
- Report irregularities
After each visit, the service technicians fill out a logbook to document and keep track of everything they have observed and corrected.
