China’s Gloryholder Liquefied Gas Machinery has recently secured a deal to supply its LNG fuel system for four bulk carriers being built for Taiwan’s U-Ming.
The LNG fuel specialist won the order from the vessels’ shipbuilder, China’s Shanghai Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding (SWS).
The contract includes the design and manufacture of two sets of type C LNG fuel tanks with PUF insulation, and LNG bunkering stations.
Gloryholder LGM would also provide a water/glycol system, ESD system, as well as commissioning and crew training, it said, adding that the deliveries would start in March 2022.
The engineering firm did not reveal financial details of the contract. Also, it recently won a similar order for Tarbit’s two tankers.
As per U-Ming’s vessels, they would go on charter to mining giant Anglo American. The 190,000 DWT dual-fuel dry bulk carriers will be about 299 meters long and 47.5 meters wide.
Furthermore, the vessels will feature MAN Energy Solutions’ high-pressure ME-GI engines.
China State Shipbuilding Corporation’s Shanghai Waigaoqiao will deliver the vessels in 2023.
