Finnish engineering company Wärtsilä has won a deal to supply its re-liquefaction plants to three liquefied natural gas (LNG) carriers, currently under construction.

One of the vessels in question is being built at South Korea’s Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) yard for the international owner and operator Gaslog. The other two are for Norway-based Knutsen and are being built at the Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) yard. The ships were ordered in April, May and June 2017, respectively.

The re-liquefaction plant ordered for these vessels features Wärtsilä’s latest mixed refrigerant (MR) technology, an energy efficient solution for smaller liquefaction applications. The new installation will have a capacity of 1.5 – 2.5 tons/hour (t/h). The Wärtsilä equipment is scheduled for delivery commencing February 2018.

“We are proud of the success of Wärtsilä’s advanced re-liquefaction plants based on MR technology, and this success is reflected in these latest orders,” Timo Koponen, Vice President, Flow & Gas Solutions at Wärtsilä Marine Solutions, said.
