TMC Compressors has announced that it has been awarded a contract by Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) to supply a marine compressed air system for a newbuild 134 000 m3 floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU).

The scope of work under the contract will include engineering, manufacturing and a supply of a complete compressed air system for the FSRU, which DSME is building for BW LNG. The vessel is currently under construction at the Okpo shipyard in South Korea, with an expected delivery date of November 2019.

Under the contract, TMC will provide 3 x 40 kW frequency controlled control air compressors and 3 x40 kW service air compressors.

Per Kjellin, the Managing Director of TMC, said: “Any FRSU is a vital component in the LNG value chain. That is why DMSE and BW LNG have opted for compressors that are built especially for marine application, as continuous uptime is crucial for both the on board compressor system and the vessel as a whole.”
