Wärtsilä has won a contract to supply the Cargo Handling and Fuel Supply systems for six new 93,000m3 capacity Liquid Petroleum Gas Carrier (LPGC) carrier vessels, being built at the Jiangnan Shipyard in China for Singapore-based Petredec.

These will be among the largest vessels of this type to be built. They will be fitted with Wärtsilä’s Cargo Handling system and the Wärtsilä LPG Fuel Supply system (LFSS). Wärtsilä says it is currently the only company with LFSSs in operation, and has a significant number of these units on order. The onboard Wärtsilä solutions will be supported with the company’s digital Operational Performance Improvement and Monitoring (OPERIM) system to provide real-time data that will allow optimal operational efficiency at all times.

Lin Qinshan, VP and Commercial Director, Jiangnan Shipyard, said: “This new 93K Very Large Gas Carrier (VLGC) is the fourth generation of VLGC developed by Jiangnan. Its advanced and optimal technology and system, its comprehensive economic and technical performance are in the leading level of the industry.”

Kjell Ove Ulstein, Director of Sales and Marketing, at Wärtsilä Gas Solutions, said: “We are delighted to be chosen as the supplier for these vessels. We are a leader in gas cargo handling solutions, and our innovative LFSS is an outstanding example of Wärtsilä’s ability to bring systems that raise efficiency and support environmental sustainability to the market.”
