Wartsila to supply systems for 6 LNG carriers that will serve Arctic LNG-2 project in the Russian Arctic

The 172,500 cbm capacity vessels will have a high ice-class rating for year-round operations along the challenging northern sea route

Wartsila to supply systems for 6 LNG carriers that will serve Arctic LNG-2 project in the Russian Arctic

Helsinki, June 1 - Neftegaz.RU. Finnish technology firm Wärtsilä will supply inert gas generator, radio and integrated navigations systems for 6 LNG carriers.
The orders were placed by South Korea's Daewoo Shipbuilding Marine Engineering (DSME) in April, and include options for equipment for an additional 2 + 2 vessels.

Inert gas systems safeguard against the risk of explosions on board liquefied gas and oil tankers.
Wartsila will also install multifunction display systems on the vessels, with workstations equipped with a full set of navigation and radio applications.

Jaechul Ha, Sales Manager, IGS, Gas Solutions commented:
  • These vessels will operate in severe climatic conditions, and it is essential that all onboard systems are capable of safe and reliable performance under all conditions
  • We have worked closely with both DSME and SCF in the past, and are pleased to continue these relationships
Alex Van Knotsenborg, Director Global Sales, Wärtsilä Voyage, commented:
  • All the navigational systems to be installed come integration-ready with Wärtsilä’s flagship Fleet Operations Solution - an industry-1st cutting-edge technology that improves ship-to-shore synergies and operational efficiencies by integrating previously fragmented navigational services under one platform
Wärtsilä's equipment will arrive at the South Korean yard beginning in September 2021.
The company won an order last month to provide radio and navigation systems for a further 10 LNGCs due to serve Arctic LNG-2.

In January it was also picked to supply dual-fuel engines for the same 6 LNGCs that will receive its equipment under the latest order.
