Korean yards order low-energy LNG reliquefaction shipsets

Seoul: Equipment supplier Hamworthy has won orders worth around $40m from Korean yards to supply eight liquid natural gas reliquefaction systems (LNG-RS). Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering Co (DSME) has ordered equipment for seven LNG carriers and Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) for one.

Delivered to DSME and SHI of the LNG-RS equipment for all eight ships will take place during 2008. The LNG carriers will serve the Qatargas 3 and 4 LNG trains. 

Last August, Hamworthy announced that Hyundai Heavy Industries had placed orders for three shipsets of LNG-RS which were the first incorporating our latest low energy technology. "These orders for the next eight shipsets are also for the low energy system," comments Hamworthy chief executive Kelvyn Derrick (pictured). 'These systems will contribute to a lower carbon footprint for eleven ships over decades of operation and also serve to demonstrate the competitive edge they provide for Hamworthy."  [19/03/07]
