Burckhardt receives several Laby -GI compressor orders

Burckhardt Compression informed it has received numerous orders for its Laby -GI compressor system for fuel gas supply.

The reciprocating compressors will be used to supply fuel gas to dual-fuel ship propulsion systems.

These compressors were ordered between December 2014 and March 2015 and will be installed on several liquefied natural gas tankers with a carrying capacity of 174’000 m3 each, the company said in a statement on Thursday.

The Laby -GI compressor system will deliver fuel gas derived from boil-off gas (LNG vapors) to the ships’ dual-fuel engines. The propulsion system can be operated with natural gas or with heavy fuel oil.
