Daewoo orders TMC compressor sets for newbuild FSRU
Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering has contracted TMC Compressors to supply a marine compressed air system to a newbuild floating storage and regasification unit.
The scope includes engineering, manufacturing, and supply of three 40-kW frequency controlled control air compressors and three 40-kW service air compressors.
“DSME and BW LNG have opted for compressors that are built especially for marine application, as continuous uptime is crucial for both the on board compressor system and the vessel as a whole,” said TMC managing director Per Kjellin.
DSME is currently constructing the 134,400-cu m (4.73-bcf) LNG FSRU for client BW LNG at its Okpo shipyard in South Korea. The vessel should be delivered in November 2019.
