MPTC has been pioneering the application of gas turbines in LNG shipping. Aero-derivative gas turbine propulsion can reduce fuel consumption by up to 40%, while cargo capacity increases by up to 17%. The increased cargo capacity, combined with lower operating and building cost, creates up to USD. 300M in additional revenue over a 20 year charter. Click on the LNG Carriers link to find out more.
Over the years, MPTC has developed a number of aero-derivative gas turbine based propulsion arrangements for LNG carriers. In 2001, a comparative design study by leading LNG consultant Marine Service GmbH of Hamburg, Germany, confirmed the economic viability of our gas turbine propulsion arrangements. Now these propulsion arrangements have been significantly improved in terms of overall thermal efficiency, thus increasing additional revenue to the operators. In March 2003, MPTC has made an comparative performance study of various makes and types of commercially available aero-derivative gas turbines in LNG shipping. A sample of the very surprising results can be viewed here. To get all the facts and figures, order the Gas Turbine Propulsion in LNG Shipping Report from MPT Consultancy.

Hull fatigue is playing an important role in many shipping disasters and MT "Prestige" is one of the lastest examples. Hull fatique caused by the cumulative effects of dynamic stress is a common problem in tankers, bulker carriers and container vessels. MPTC introduces the SENSFIB fiber optic hull stress monitoring system, developed by Norwegian fiber optic specialist Light Structures. SENSFIB continuously monitors hull fatigue development. SENSFIB provides real-time information on the actual hull stress loads during cargo operations, while ballasting and at sea, allowing the crew to prevent damage or even loss of the vessel and cargo.
Hull stress loads and hull fatigue development data can be used to the benefit of the crew, owner, the charterer, Class and P&I clubs. Prevent cargo loss in heavy weather using SENSFIB. Schedule preventative maintenance instead of having to salvage and repair. Reduce you P&I rates through fewer claims. Class surveys can be performed more effectively. SENSFIB might not be the cure for all evils, but it helps in avoiding cargo loss and hull damage. For more information please click here.
