TGE Marine has delivered the skid mounted LNG fuel gas package units destined for the conversion of the first Qatari Q-max carrier (“Rasheeda”) to run on LNG or HFO. The conversion of the ship shall take place at the Nakilat Keppel Offshore & Marine facilities in Qatar and shall start in April this year.
Factory acceptance test of the prefabricated modules took place in December last year in Germany and the units have been shipped on schedule.
TGE Marine’s CEO, Manfred Küver, commented: “After a very intensive basic and detailed engineering phase we are happy that we did succeed to deliver the modules on schedule and we are looking forward to putting the modules in operation sometime in the second quarter of this year. After the gas trials the “Rasheeda” will be the first LNG-carrier working on a converted MAN ME-GI engine.”
