Chinese shipbuilding company Jiangnan Shipyard Group has contracted TMC Compressors of the Seas to supply a complete marine compressed air system for two LPG carriers the shipbuilder is constructing for Belgian shipowner Exmar. TMC will supply its environmentally friendly Smart Air compressors to the vessel. TMC’s Smart Air compressors offer up to 50 percent energy saving compared to conventional compressors and reflects the environmental profile of the LPG carriers. TMC’s scope of work is to supply a complete marine compressed air system to each of the two vessels, consisting of 2 x Smart Air compressors for service air and 2 x adsorption dryers for control air. TMC has not disclosed the value of its contract.

The 86,000 m³ gas carriers, to be fuelled by LPG, are constructed at Shanghai’s Jiangnan Shipyard. The two environmentally-friendly newbuildings, VLGC Jiangnan H2667 and VLGC Jiangnan H2668, are scheduled for delivery in the second and third quarter of 2021, respectively.

Once delivered, the two LPG carriers will be deployed for Exmar’s LPG transportation commitments for Norwegian energy giant Equinor.
