Wärtsilä Hamworthy contracted by Hyundai Mipo Dockyard for cargo handling equipment & engineering for four Exmar Shipping SA gas carriers.

Wärtsilä Hamworthy’s scope of supply will include cargo related engineering including deck tank engineering, reliquefaction plant, Wärtsilä Moss inert gas generator, Wärtsilä Svanehøj cargo pumps, cargo heater and vaporiser, cargo control system, supervision and commissioning. All equipment and engineering services will be delivered in 2013.

Each of the 38,000 m³ capacity vessels will be delivered from the first quarter of 2014 onwards. All will feature Hyundai Mipo’s newly developed ship design, able to carry LNG or ammonia, and with cargo capacity increased by 3,000 m³.

The new design includes an improved hull shape to minimise resistance in water and optimise fuel consumption. The engine room and deck will be designed so that LNG or LPG can be used to fuel the new vessels.

Exmar said the addition of the vessels into its fleet will strengthen the company's existing midsize LPG sector as these vessels can transport both ammonia and LPG. The contract will bring to 13 the number of gas carriers in the Exmar LPG fleet to feature Wärtsilä Hamworthy cargo handling engineering and equipment.
