Abstract [sv]

Denna studie bestod i att undersöka situationen på marknaden angående framdriftsanläggningar för LNG-tankfartyg. Syftet med arbetet var att skapa en relevant bild av hur situationen ser ut idag och genom intervjuer ta reda på hur den kan komma att förändras.

Genom en litteraturstudie undersöktes läget på marknaden och utifrån det kunde relevanta frågor utformas. Efter att frågorna hade utformats tog författarna kontakt med olika företag som var anknutna till marknaden för LNG-tankfartyg. Intervjuer med företagen genomfördes och dessa har gjort det möjligt att analysera hur läget kan komma att förändras.

Studien har visat att det finns ett system, DFDE, som dominerar fartygsbeställningar i dagsläget. Det finns även nyare system som består av gasdrivna tvåtaktsmotorer som förväntas ta över en del av marknaden. Andra system såsom ånganläggningar och anläggningar med gasturbin finns tillgängliga men de ligger inte i fokus i dagsläget.  

Abstract [en]

This study consisted of analysing the current situation on the market for propulsion systems for LNG-carriers. The purpose of the study was to create a relevant picture of what the situation looks like today and through interviews try to predict how the situation might come to change.

By using already existing literature the authors reviewed the situation on the market as it is today and formed relevant questions. After the questions had been formed the authors contacted several companies associated with the LNG-carrier market. Interviews with these companies were carried out and it is through these interviews possible to analyse how the situation might come to change.

The study has shown that there is one system that dominates the market for LNG-carrier propulsion, DFDE. There is however a new system, with dual-fuel two stroke engines that is expected to take over a part of the market in the near future. Other propulsion systems such as steam propulsion plant and a system with a gas turbine exist on the market but the interest in these systems is limited.
