Wärtsilä also supply cargo handling system

Wärtsilä has won the contract to supply the fuel supply systems for six new 93 000 m3 capacity liquid petroleum gas (LPG) carrier vessels.

The ships are being built at the Jiangnan Shipyard in China for Singapore-based Petredec and will be among the largest vessels of this type ever built, the company said. Petredec announced in late 2020 the ships will be powered by individual MAN B&W 6G60ME-LGIP dual-fuel engines capable of running on LPG.

Six new Petredec Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG) carrier vessels will be supplied by Wärtsilä’s Cargo Handling and Fuel Supply systems.

The ships will be fitted with Wärtsilä’s cargo handling system and the Wärtsilä LPG Fuel Supply system (LFSS). Wärtsilä said it is currently the only company with LFSSs in operation, and has also a significant number of these units on order. The onboard Wärtsilä solutions will be supported with the company’s digital Operational Performance Improvement and Monitoring (OPERIM) system to provide real-time data that will allow optimal operational efficiency at all times, the company said.
