TGE Marine has won further contracts for its LNG fuel gas systems.
The company signed a contract with Rolls-Royce Marine AS for the design and supply of an LNG fuel gas package to convert an oil tanker in mid-February 2014. The scope of supply includes engineering and delivery of two vacuum insulated LNG tanks (150 m3 each) and the gas processing equipment to send natural gas to the main engine.
TGE Marine has also signed two contracts with MAN Diesel & Turbo for the design and supply of high and low pressure LNG fuel gas packages. The systems will be installed on two Con-Ro vessels, which have been contracted in the US by Crowley Maritime Corp. with VT Halter Marine Shipyard. Each vessel will be equipped with 3 x 770 m3 vacuum insulated LNG storage tanks, high pressure/low pressure pumps, BOG compressors, vaporisers, a utility and safety system, and a control and alarm board.
TGE Marine’s CEO, Manfred Küver, commented on the recent deals: “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.
“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”.
