Ulstein Brattvaag has landed contracts totaling $2 million by two of Japan
's largest shipbuilders for the supply of deck machinery
for a pair of LNG carriers. The agreement also allows for options for corresponding equipment for two more LNG tankers, thus allowing the contract to double in value.
Construction of the series of 135,000 cu. m. LNG carriers for the Malaysian State company Petronas tankers has been placed with two Japanese shipyards: Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHVYF)
and Mitsui Engineering.
The contract calls for Ulstein to supply a full set of low-pressure hydraulic deck winches for each LNG carrier, comprising two Brattvaag combined windlasses and mooring winches forward. All components, such as the electrically driven low-pressure hydraulic power packs and remote controls for foredeck and aftdeck machinery are also included.
