Hanwha Ocean Picks TMC For LNG Carrier Air Solutions


TMC Compressors

Hanwha Ocean has selected Norway-based TMC Compressors to deliver the complete marine compressed air system to three LNG carriers the Korean shipbuilder is constructing for an undisclosed Asian shipowner.

TMC’s scope of supply consists of a complete marine compressed air system, including control and service air compressors plus nitrogen feed air compressors, to each of the three vessels. The marine compressed air system is designed to allow the vessel crew to maintain it themselves.

Manufacturer and Contract

TMC will manufacture the equipment in Europe and ship it to Hanwha Ocean in South Korea. TMC has not disclosed the value of the contract.

“The LNG newbuilding market is buoyant and we are proud to be able to offer an energy efficient marine compressed air system that is favoured by Hanwha Ocean as well as other shipbuilders. Our supplier relationship with Hanwha Ocean is based on mutual trust in our technologies and people, and a joint desire to reduce shipowners’ operating costs and emissions to a minimum,” says Hans Petter Tanum, TMC’s director of sales and business development.

The three LNG carriers will each have a capacity of 174,000 cubic metres LNG.
