“Babcock LGE’s contract win in Japan cements our growing reputation in the Far East as a leading player in the provision of LPG cargo handling systems. We have a first class team with extensive experience which is keen to continue to push the business on to the next level.”- Neale Campbell, Babcock LGE - Program Director.
 
The multi-million pound contract is set for delivery in 2019, with Babcock LGE activity taking place over 41 months and including the fabrication and delivery of the Reliquefaction Plant Skids.
