WinGD supplies Wartsila DF engines for LNG newbuild

Winterthur Gas & Diesel (WinGD) informed on Tuesday it is supplying two Wärtsilä dual-fuel engines 5X72DF for an LNG carrier under construction at Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME).

The South Korean shipbuilder is constructing the vessel for Japan’s Mitsui OSK Lines (MOL), WinGD said in a statement.

The carrier will transport gas under an agreement that E.ON Global Commodities has concluded for shipping capacity with MOL.

With a gas carrying capacity of 179,900 cbm, the 297.9-metre overall length, 47.9-metre beam vessel will be engaged in a 20-year free-on-board (FOB) off-take of approximately 800,000 tons per year of LNG, sourced from U.S. Gulf liquefaction projects, including the planned terminal near Freeport, Texas.

The official contract for the vessel between MOL and DSME was signed in February 2015 and the first engine is due for delivery to the DSME shipyard in June 2017, WinGD said.
