TGE Marine Pens Contract for Conversion of Qatari Q-Max Carrier

At the beginning of January TGE Marine has signed the contract with MAN Diesel & Turbo (MDT) for the design and supply of the LNG fuel gas package destined for the conversion of the first Qatari Q-max carrier to run on LNG or HFO. The modification of the low speed 2-stroke main engine will make use of MDT’s electronically controlled gas injection system.

The conversion of the ship shall take place at the Nakilat Keppel Offshore & Marine facilities in Qatar. Once converted and put into operation the ship will be propelled by the world’s first low speed diesel engine running on LNG onboard a ship.

TGE Marine has intensively investigated the design of the high pressure fuel gas supply system with its partner ACD from the US for the pumping and vaporizing system, including a complete dynamic simulation of the system considering all load scenarios. TGE Marine’s scope of delivery includes a modular pre-fabricated fuel gas skid, which is scheduled for delivery in Q1, 2015.

 TGE Marine’s CEO, Manfred Küver, commented: “We are extremely pleased to have been selected by MDT as partner for its first conversion contract for one of the largest LNG-carriers in the market. This prestigious project is certainly a signal for the market that the MAN 2-stroke ME-GI solution is one of the most economic approaches of a modern LNG carrier design.
