Wärtsilä said it has been contracted by Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME) of South Korea to supply combined inert gas generators and gas combustion units for 17 new LNG carriers currently under construction at the yard.

The vessels are being built for operators in Singapore, Greece, South Korea, Cyprus and Canada, Wärtsilä said in a statement on Thursday noting that the contracts were inked in June and September.

According to Wärtsilä, these will be the first ever units delivered by the company that combine inert gas generators (IGG) and gas combustion units (GCU) with high capacity.

The systems have a maximum volume of up to 3800 kg/h which is sufficient for the industry’s largest LNG carriers. The system uses an existing Wärtsilä Moss inert gas generator to burn the boil-off gas, thereby eliminating the need for a conventional gas combustion unit.

Deliveries of the equipment to the South Korean shipyards are scheduled to commence in the third quarter of 2016.
