FOUR-VESSEL ORDER FOR WÄRTSILÄ LNG CARGO SYSTEMS FROM DSME

Thursday, July 1, 2021 

Wärtsilä is to supply Cargo Handling Systems for four new 91,000m3 capacity Very Large Gas Carrier (VLGC) vessels being built for Norway-based fleet owner Avance Gas.

The ships are under construction at the Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) yard in South Korea.

“Wärtsilä is the world’s largest supplier of complete cargo handling systems for gas carriers, and there is a good reason for us holding that position. We have the technology and we have the in-house competences that ensure that each customer gets the exact system needed for his specific needs,” said Hans Jakob Buvarp, Sales Manager, Wärtsilä Gas Solutions.

The Wärtsilä equipment is expected to be delivered to the yard in May 2022. Wärtsilä has previously delivered similar systems for an earlier series of Avance Gas vessels.
