Wilhelmsen Technical Solutions (WTS) has secured multiple orders to supply its Maritime Protection Dry Inert Gas Generator (DIGG) systems for installation on LNG carriers.
The LNG carriers are currently under construction at Japan Marine United’s Tsu shipyard, for Japanese owners Tokyo LNG Tanker Company/Mitsui O.S.K Lines (first vessel) and Tokyo LNG Tanker Company/NYK Line (second vessel).
Commenting on the orders, Maritime Protection Managing Director, Steinar Andersen, said: “We are delighted to be working with JMU on these orders, which confirm Wilhelmsen Technical Solutions amongst the leaders in the supply of Dry Inert Gas Generator systems to LNG as well as LPG carriers. These orders are a breakthrough for WTS in the Japanese market where our DIGG systems have been chosen as a ‘state of the art’ solution, positioned for the future LNG gas carrier market.”
The MP DIGG system comprises an inert gas generator, refrigeration unit and a combined cooler/dryer and will be delivered to the yard in 2016.
