China’s first seagoing LNG bunker vessel will operate with a comprehensive and integrated package of highly efficient and environmentally sustainable solutions from the technology group Wärtsilä. The ship is being built by the Dalian Shipbuilding Industry Corporation for an affiliate of the ENN Energy holdings, one of the largest users of LNG in China. It has been designed by China Ship Design & Research Center Co Ltd. The orders with Wärtsilä were booked in Q1 2019. Wärtsilä will provide the vessel’s cargo handling system, the Wärtsilä 34DF dual-fuel main engine, the gearbox, controlled pitch propeller, shaft generator, two Wärtsilä 20DF dual-fuel auxiliary engines, and the ship’s sewage treatment plant. The integrated gas, propulsion, and waste treatment systems are designed to deliver high efficiency with stable and clean operations. The equipment is scheduled for delivery in early 2020.

Scott Oh, Area Sales Director, Middle East & Asia, Wärtsilä Marine, said that “Being the first vessel of its kind built and owned by Chinese companies, makes this an important and exciting project. The experience and well-established track record that Wärtsilä has in LNG shipping applications is again endorsed with this latest order. Our ability as a single-source supplier to offer the full and integrated package of solutions brings real value to both the owners and the yard.”
