MMHE to offer air lubrication system to LNG carriers

Malaysia Marine and Heavy Engineering (MMHE) has signed a strategic agreement with Silverstream Technologies to assess retrofit opportunities for Silverstream’s air lubrication technology system on LNG carriers.

The ship repair yard, a wholly owned subsidiary of Malaysia Marine and Heavy Engineering Holdings Berhad (MHB), aims to work with Silverstream Technologies to support LNG carrier owners and operators in managing the energy efficiency of their vessels and their progress towards EEXI and CII compliance.

As part of the agreement, the two organisations jointly promote the Silverstream System and other complementary products and services, with MMHE becoming an approved installation provider of the air lubrication technology. Silverstream will provide technical and commercial support to assist MMHE in securing contracts, including the provision of initial efficiency saving estimates and system design information on proposed installations.

“We are delighted to sign this agreement with Silverstream, a renowned maritime clean technology service provider. This strategic partnership is a promising start as it unlocks new commercial opportunities for both companies,” said Pandai Othman, MD and CEO, MMHE.

“Together, it allows us to bring the powerful combination of MMHE’s retrofit and conversion technical expertise and Silverstream’s air lubrication system to market in supporting our customers’ decarbonisation strategies, thus accelerating the industry’s transition to cleaner shipping.”
