“These eight ships will be owned by various leading global shipping companies. The orders from Hudong Zhonghua Shipyard were included in Wärtsilä’s order intake in the first quarter of 2023,” Wärtsilä said.
“The selection of Wärtsilä’s solutions reflects the industry’s focus on efficiency and reduced environmental impact as a means of decarbonizing ship operations. For each ship, Wärtsilä will supply the Wärtsilä Compact Reliq Single Booster (CRSB) reliquefaction system,” Wärtsilä added.
“Reliquefaction systems are now becoming standard on all sizes of LNG carriers and our Compact Reliq system perfectly fills this need. The booster function implemented in the Compact Reliq systems allows us to provide a reliquefaction system with superior efficiency and the lowest power consumption in its class, which in turn reduces the ship’s gas consumption,” he says Pal SteinnesSales Manager, Midstream, Wärtsilä Gas Solutions.
The Wärtsilä equipment is scheduled to be delivered from 2024 and the first ship is scheduled for delivery in 2025.
According to Wärtsilä, the Compact Reliq system was designed for high efficiency and easy installation. The cooling medium used is nitrogen, which is not only safe but also serves to simplify the system’s operation, Wartsila said.
