Finnish technology group Wartsila orders six LPG carriers
Wärtsilä, a Finnish technology company, has been awarded the contract to supply cargo handling and fuel supply systems for six new LPG carrier vessels with a capacity of 93,000 cubic meters.
The six very large LPG carrier vessels, which will be among the largest of their kind, are being constructed for Singapore-based Petredec at the Jiangnan Shipyard in China.
Wärtsilä's Cargo Handling system and Wärtsilä's LPG Fuel Supply system will be installed on the vessels (LFSS).
Wärtsilä is the only company currently operating Petroleum Gas Fuel Supply systems. Wärtsilä's solutions will be backed up by the company's digital Operational Performance Improvement and Monitoring (OPERIM) framework, which will provide real-time data for maximum operational efficiency.
Wärtsilä's ability to bring systems to market that improve performance and promote environmental protection is illustrated by the LPG Fuel Supply system.
