APRIL 17, 2014 — TGE Marine Gas Engineering GmbH, Bonn, Germany, has been awarded contracts by MAN Diesel & Turbo for the design and supply of high- and low pressure LNG fuel gas packages for the two LNG-fueled on Con-Ro vessels ordered from VT Halter Marine by Crowley Maritime Corporation.
Each 219.5 mvessel will be powered by an MAN B&W 8S70ME-GI8.2 main engine and three MAN 9L28/32DF auxiliary engines.
TGE Marine's supply for each vessel will include three 770 cu.m vacuum insulated LNG storage tanks, high pressure/low pressure pumps, BOG-compressors, vaporizers, utility and safety system as well as a control & alarm board.
Another interesting contract gained by TGE Marine comes from Rolls-Royce Marine AS for the design and supply of the LNG fuel gas package destined for the conversion of an oil tanker. TGE Marine's scope of supply comprises engineering and delivery of two vacuum insulated LNG tanks, each 150 cu.m and the gas processing equipment to send natural gas to the main engine.
"Having signed three further contracts for high pressure and low pressure LNG fuel gas systems in such a short period of time proves our ambition to become one of the leading contractors for medium to large size LNG fuel gas packages," says TGE Marine's CEO, Manfred Küver. "We receive more and more enquiries from the U.S. European and the Far East market for different kind of merchant vessels and believe that, with several announcements to invest in the LNG infrastructure for bunkering, this market will gain further momentum."
