Title:
SHIP
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2019/050003
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
A ship that comprises: a fuel supply line that supplies LPG from a fuel tank to an engine; a pump and a shutoff valve that are provided to the fuel supply line; a fuel recovery line that recovers LPG from the engine to the fuel tank; a bypass line that branches from the fuel supply line upstream of the shutoff valve and is connected to the fuel recovery line or the fuel tank; a flow rate control valve that is provided to the bypass line; a manometer that detects the supply pressure of the LPG upstream of the shutoff valve; a flowmeter that detects the supply flow rate or the recovery flow rate of the LPG; and a control device. When the shutoff valve is closed, the control device controls the flow rate control valve and/or the rotational speed of the pump such that the supply pressure of the LPG as detected by the manometer stays at a required pressure that is necessary for the engine to operate. When the shutoff valve is open, the control device controls the flow rate control valve and the rotational speed of the pump such that the flow rate detected by the flowmeter is at a prescribed value that corresponds to the fuel consumption of the engine.
