Finnish technology group Wärtsilä has been contracted to provide an integrated cargo handling and fuel gas system for two new gas carrier vessels for the Belgium-based fleet owner Exmar.

The ships, which will transport liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), are being built at Hanjin Heavy Industries & Construction Philippines in Subic Bay.

The design of these ships focuses on high efficiency and a more sustainable operational profile, Wärtsilä said, adding that these 80,000 cubic meter very large gas carriers will be the first vessels capable of running on LPG.

The solution enables high energy efficiency with lower carbon emissions, providing a positive Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) for the vessels.

Wärtsilä will also deliver its anti-pollution shaft sealing system, which provides extra security against oil leaking into the sea.

The Wärtsilä equipment is scheduled for delivery in mid-2019, and the vessels are expected to be delivered during the latter part of 2020.
