Information about Seri Damai and Seri Daya

Seri Damai and Seri Daya feature advanced technology to cater to the growing needs for safe, reliable and energy-efficient solutions in the transportation of LNG. The LNG carriers have enhanced cargo tank insulation with the GTT Mark-III Flex PLUS cargo containment system which reduces the boil-off rate to 0.07% of cargo volume per day for improved efficiency.

Powered by WinGD X-DF propulsion, the vessels fulfill the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) Tier-III emission requirements without any external exhaust gas after-treatment system. It also complies with the Energy Efficiency Existing Ship Index (EEXI) standard while the ecoefficient vessels are also certified with ENVIRO Notation, a voluntary adoption of integrating ABS requirements with international conventions for environmental protection. These requirements include, principally, the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships (MARPOL), the IMO Ballast Water Management Convention (BWM Convention) and the Hong Kong Convention (for the safe and environmentally sound recycling of ships).

At the forefront of digital and smart shipping technology, Seri Damai and Seri Daya utilise the Samsung SVESSEL technology for enhanced safety and efficiency through remote monitoring of vessel performance and operations.
