Wartsila scores another contract for Arctic LNG 2 sextet

Finland’s Wartsila has won a contract to deliver inert gas generator systems for six new Arc7 ice-class tankers that will serve Novatek’s Arctic LNG 2 project located on the Gydan peninsula. 

South Korea’s Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering awarded the order to the engine manufacturer in April, Wartsila said on Monday.

The contract includes an option for four further 172,500-cbm ships.

Besides the inert gas systems, Wartsila will also supply radio and integrated navigation systems.

Wartsila said it would start delivering the equipment to the yard in September this year.

To remind, the Finnish firm has also won a contract in January to supply dual-fuel engines for the same six ice-class vessels.

DSME will build three vessels for Japan’s MOL and three for Russia’s Sovcomflot.

The vessels will mainly transport LNG from the Gydan facility to the transshipment terminals in Kamchatka and Murmansk via the Northern Sea Route.
