LONDON – Rolls-Royce has secured a contract with Keppel Shipyard in Singapore to supply two of its all-gas engines for power generation onboard a floating liquefaction vessel (FLNGV) owned by Golar LNG Ltd. The vessel Hilli was a former LNG carrier and is being converted to a FLNGV carrier.
Bergen B35:40V20AG is a compact and powerful gas engine with world-leading environmental performance in terms of low emissions of nitrogen oxides, CO2, sulphur oxides, and particulates. The company says the energy consumption is also low. The power generated will be mainly used for the liquefaction processes, and also for supporting vessel operation and the energy needs of the crew onboard.
The contract with Keppel Shipyard includes an option for additional two engines for a second Golar LNG carrier to be converted,Gimi. The engines are scheduled for delivery next year and the conversion of Hilliis expected to be completed in 1Q 2017.
