Burckhardt Compression will provide compressors for a liquefied natural gas (LNG) carrier with an X-DF propulsion system.

Burckhardt Compression said on Wednesday that it would outfit a 30,000-cbm LNG carrier operated by Knutsen OAS Shipping with Laby compressors.

The compressors will be delivered to Hyundai Mipo Dockyard as part of the fuel gas supply system built by Wärtsilä Oil & Gas Solutions and will supply the LNG carrier’s WinGD X-DF dual-fuel engine with LNG boil-off gas as fuel.

It is worth noting that the X-DF engine, a two-stroke engine from Winterthur Gas & Diesel, allows both natural gas and marine diesel to be used as fuel for ship propulsion systems.

Ship operators can switch between the two fuel types, maritime diesel, and the boil-off gas that evaporates from LNG storage tanks during operation.
