Burckhardt Compressors Selected For LNG Vessels
By DJ Slater04 December 2020
Burckhardt Compression received an order for eight low-pressure compressor systems for boil-off gas (BOG) management on four container vessels.
C-LNG Solutions, a Singapore-based specialist in LNG fuel gas products and LNG cargo handling, placed the order. The company will use the compressor systems for compressing boil-off gas produced from evaporating LNG on the vessels. The compressed gas can then be used as fuel for the onboard WinGD X-DF two-stroke propulsion engines.
Burckhardt Compression’s 2K70 Laby BOG compressor system handles small mass flows at cryogenic gas temperatures without the need for BOG pre-heating, the company said.
