HHI picks TMC compressors for LNG carrier duo

South Korea’s Hyundai Heavy Industries has contracted Norwegian firm TMC Compressors to supply marine air lubrication system compressors to two LNG carriers.

TMC said in a statement that HHI is building these LNG vessels for Korea Line.

Each of the two LNG carriers will be equipped with HHI’s self-developed Hi-ALS air lubrication system.

TMC will supply its frequency-controlled marine compressors for use in combination with HHI’s air lubrication system.

The Oslo-based firm said its equipment would be manufactured in Scandinavia and shipped to HHI in Korea.

TMC did not reveal the value of the deal.
