TMC Compressors of the Seas (TMC) has an order to deliver Smart Air compressors to Hyundai Mipo Dockyard.

The compressors will be fitted on two 21,000cbm ethylene carrier vessels being developed by Hyundai Mipo Dockyard in South Korea.

Vessels will be operated by petrochemical shipping company Solvang and Norwegian LPG.

Designed to be run on heavy fuel oil (HFO), the vessels are expected to consume 30% less fuel.

Wärtsilä will supply an integrated cargo handling and fuel gas system for two very large gas carriers (VLGCs) to be delivered to Exmar, a ship management service provider based in Belgium.

Intended for transportation of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), the vessels are being constructed at Hanjin Heavy Industries & Construction Philippines’ (HHIC-Philippines) ship manufacturing facility in Subic Bay.

The 80,000m³ vessels have been designed for more sustainable and efficient operations.

“The vessels are expected to consume 30% less fuel.”
