International compressor supplier TMC Compressors of the Seas (TMC) has been awarded a contract to supply a complete marine compressed air system and associated equipment to four of TMS Cardiff Gas’ LNG carriers currently under construction.
The four LNG carriers are being built at Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) and Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) in South Korea, TMC said in its statement.
TMC’s scope of supply is to provide 2 control air compressors, 1 service air compressor and 2 N2 (nitrogen) feed air compressors for each of the four vessels. For the vessels being built by HHI, TMC will also supply 2 SCR (selective catalytic reduction) compressors.
TMC’s contract value is undisclosed, the company’s statement reads.
Each vessel will have a storage capacity of 174,000 cubic meters and be equipped with XDF propulsion.
The four LNG carriers will enter into long-term time charter contracts with Shell once they are delivered in 2020/2021.
In June 2018, TMC won a contract to supply a complete marine compressed air system to three LNG carriers that Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) is building for TMS Cardiff Gas.
