In mid-February TGE Marine, provider of engineering services for the design and supply of gas carriers and offshore units, signed a contract with Rolls-Royce Marine AS for the design and supply of a LNG fuel gas package destined for the conversion of an oil tanker. TGE Marine’s scope of supply comprises engineering and delivery of two vacuum insulated LNG tanks, each 150 m3 and the gas processing equipment to send natural gas to the main engine.
Furthermore two contracts for the design and supply of high- and low pressure LNG fuel gas packages were signed with MAN Diesel & Turbo (MDT). The systems will be installed on two Con-Ro vessels which have been contracted in the US by Crowley Maritime Corporation with VT Halter Marine Shipyard. Each vessel will be equipped with 3 × 770 m3 vacuum insulated LNG storage tanks, high pressure/low pressure pumps, BOG-compressors, vaporizers, utility and safety system as well as a control & alarm board.
“Having signed three further contracts for high pressure and low pressure LNG fuel gas systems in such a short period of time proves our ambition to become one of the leading contractors for medium to large size LNG fuel gas packages”, commented TGE Marine’s CEO, Manfred Küver. “We receive more and more enquiries from the US, European and the Far East market for different kind of merchant vessels and believe that, with several announcements to invest in the LNG infrastructure for bunkering, this market will gain further momentum”.
