Green iron and steel – safe DRI shipping

The modern maritime industry relies on gas and flame detection for safe operations. LNG tankers, LPG tankers, crude oil tankers and refined products tankers carry thousands of tonnes or flammable, volatile hydrocarbons.

As shown in Table 1, bulkers transport thousands of tonnes of coal and iron ore daily. Fertilisers and food grains are also common bulk cargoes. Many bulk cargoes, such as cement, present a low degree of hazard with minimal gas detection requirements. Others such as coal, DRI and ammonium nitrate granules present hazards that must be monitored using gas detection equipment.
