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.
