WÄRTSILÄ GAS SYSTEMS FOR CHINESE PROPANE TANKERS

Wärtsilä is to supply Cargo Handling and LPG Fuel Supply Systems for two new very large gas carrier (VLGC) vessels being built for China-based Oriental Energy, a company mainly focused on operation of PDH (Propane Dehydrogenation) factories and LPG trading.

The ships are under construction at the Jiangnan yard in China. The 93,000m3 capacity vessels are among the largest of their type. In addition to the Cargo Handling System, Wärtsilä will deliver its LPG Fuel Supply System (LFSS) as an integrated element within the entire gas handling installation. Wärtsilä is thought to be the only company with LFSS units in operation.

“Our experience and track record in supplying state-of-the-art gas cargo systems for the global shipping fleet is unmatched, and we are delighted to have been contracted to supply these new vessels. We have established a strong relationship with the Jiangnan shipyard and look forward to working with them again on this project,” said Hans Jakob Buvarp, Sales Manager, Wärtsilä Gas Solutions.

The Wärtsilä equipment is scheduled for delivery in July 2022. Wärtsilä has delivered similar systems to two Oriental Energy VLGCs.

Wärtsilä Gas Solutions' main focus areas are the handling of gas in seaborne transport (storage, fuel, transfer and BOG management), gas to power, liquefaction and biogas solutions, helping to provide a sustainable future through a focus on lifecycle, innovation and digitalisation.
