Ship to Shore Link Straatman LNG

What is a the Ship-to-Shore Link?

The Ship-to-Shore Link (in short SSL) is an important safety system for any LNG transfer operation, as it prevents the risk of fire, explosion or environmental damages. The main purpose of the Ship- to- Shore Link system is to ensure simultaneous mutual emergency shutdown of ship and shore plants in the event of an abnormality signalled by either ship or shore SIS. Our Straatman Ship-to- Shore Link is an inventive high-end system which is adaptable to customer requirements. We can provide the SSL system in different sizes, configurations and we offer a stand-by service as we know the importance of the Ship-to- Shore Link system during LNG Transfers.

Keeping in mind that it is important to ensure compatibility with third parties worldwide, we designed and built our SSL according to the ISO 28460, ISO 20519, SIGTTO guidelines and SGMF. This ensures the compatibility with third party systems which also complies with the guidelines and recommendations. We can provide the Ship-Shore Link with the following links:

  • 6 pin Furukawa Fibre Optic Link
  • 37 pin Pyle Electric Link
  • 4 pin Pyle Earth Bonding
  • 6 pin Miyaki Electric Link
  • 5 pin SIGTTO Electric Link (Supplier and Receiver Mode)
  • 2 pin ADN Link
  • Pneumatic Link
  • ITT Cannon Link

Our Ship-to-Shore Link has been designed using the latest industry-standard technologies. Our approach allows us to adapt and tailor our SSL system to meet your specific requirements.

Project Configuration

Straatman offers the possibility to integrate two independent systems into one cabinet. This is a configuration which is especially for FSRU or FLNG projects. With the smart technology and space inside the SSL cabinet we can provide one dedicated module with HMI for the ship side and a second module for the shore side including a backup for both sides. This configuration is cost efficient for the end-user as we integrate two independent systems into one SSL Cabinet.

We can also transmit important data such as MLM over the ship to shore link systems so the operator can monitor all necessary information with the carry on board computer.

Depending on the type project, our Ship-to-Shore Link system comes with connector boxes, hand carried reels or fixed storage reels and test equipment. Based on our experience and the requirements, we will determine what is required for the project. Besides the boxes and reels, we can also supply the PABX, Public and Hotline telephones.

The Hotline telephone will be compatible with the obsolete Iwatsu T3 unit to allow communication with Hotline phones from third parties.

The housing of our hotphone is tough and weather resistant. It withstands abuse and extreme environmental conditions. The phone has a dual purpose design which can be used for flush or desk mounting. The hotphone has a built in speaker and we optionally we can also offer for a separate speaker if required.
