Burckhardt Compression receives orders

Published by
LNG Industry,

Burckhardt Compression has announced that it received numerous orders for its Labe-GI compressor system for fuel gas supply between December 2014 and March 2015.

The reciprocating compressors will be used to supply fuel gas to dual-fuel ship propulsion systems. They will be installed on several LNG tankers with a carrying capacity of 174 000 m3 each.

The compressor system will deliver fuel gas derived from boil-off gas (LNG vapours) to the ships' dual-fuel engines. The propulsion system can be operated with eco-friendly natural gas or with heavy fuel oil. The Laby®-GI compressors will be utilised to deliver fuel gas to ship engines and auxiliary power units and also to reliquefy boil-off gas. This multi-purpose design helps to minimise the complexity of on­board installations as well as the footprint and weight of the installations.

The fuel gas compressor system was developed in close collaboration with MAN Diesel & Turbo.
