Wartsila and Saacke target LNG, LPG carrier markets as part of new pact

Finland’s Wartsila and Germany’s Saacke are teaming up to jointly offer solutions for the LNG and LPG carrier markets which they expect to remain strong over the coming years.

Warstila said on Thursday it signed a strategic partnership agreement with Saacke, the German supplier of marine firing plants for seagoing vessels, offshore plants and LNG tankers.

A central feature of the agreement is a cooperation regarding safety, in particular with inert gas systems (IGS) and gas combustion units (GCU), the Helsinki-based engine manufacturer said.

In addition, the agreement will also enable both partners to offer larger and more comprehensive scopes of supply.

The agreement covers Saacke’s boilers, exhaust gas economizers, and air-cooled gas combustion units, as well as Wartsila’s inert gas systems and combined inert gas and gas combustion units.

Moreover, Wartsila will also make its flue gas system available to Saacke, thereby making it possible for a single delivery of a boiler and flue gas system, it said.
