Hudong-Zhonghua selects TMC compressors for MOL’s LNG carriers

China’s Hudong-Zhonghua has contracted Norwegian firm TMC Compressors to supply a complete marine compressed air system to six 174,000-cbm LNG carriers ordered by Japan’s MOL.

TMC said in a statement it would supply multiple control and service air compressors and air driers to each of the six LNG carriers.

In addition, TMC will provide feed air compressors to the N2 (nitrogen) system on board each of the six vessels.

TMC said it would manufacture the equipment in the Nordic region and ship it to China.

The firm did not reveal the price tag of the deal.

MOL, in a partnership with COSCO Shipping’s unit CSLNG, ordered these six vessels from Hudong-Zhonghua in January this year for about $1.17 billion.

All of the ships will serve CNOOC’s gas and power unit under long-term charter deals.

Part of Hudong-Zhonghua’s fifth-generation Changxeng series, the 299 meters long vessels will feature WinGD’s X-DF dual-fuel engines and GTT’s NO96 Super+ containment system.

The Chinese shipbuilder will deliver the vessels from 2024 through 2026.
