Oslo-headquartered TMC Compressors intends to unveil its boil-off gas compressor to be utilized on all vessels using liquefied natural gas (LNG) as fuel, at an upcoming conference in Norway. 

“By compressing the boil-off gas to the required pressure in order to supply it as fuel directly into the ship’s engine, you will have an optimal system with regards to energy efficiency,” says Hans Petter Tanum, TMC’s director of sales and business development.

The system captures the boil-off gas from the LNG fuel tanks onboard, compresses it and injects it into the main engine as fuel.

“Using LNG as fuel is becoming increasingly popular because it has lower levels of harmful emissions to air compared with conventional marine fuels. However, the biggest bonus with boil-off gas is that you are able to reduce the vessel’s fuel costs quite significantly,” adds Tanum.

The marine boil-off gas compressor system can also be utilized on vessels that run on dual fuel, for example, LNG in combination with bunker oil.
