Wärtsilä to supply reliquefaction systems for eight ships

Technology group Wärtsilä has been awarded a contract to supply reliquefaction systems for eight ships.

This follows on from its earlier newbuild programme in June 2022 for four new vessels.

These eight vessels will be owned by various leading global shipping companies. For each ship, Wärtsilä will supply Wärtsilä Compact Reliq Single Booster (CRSB) reliquefaction system.

The Wärtsilä Compact Reliq system has been designed for both high efficiency and easy installation.

The cooling media used is nitrogen, which in addition to being safe, also serves to simplify the system’s operation.

The orders by Hudong Zhonghua Shipyard were booked into the company’s order intake in Q1 2023.

The equipment is scheduled to be delivered commencing in 2024, and the first ship is expected to be delivered in 2025.

“The booster function implemented on the Compact Reliq systems enables us to supply a reliquefaction system with superior efficiency and lowest-in-class power consumption, which in turn reduces the vessel’s gas consumption,” said Pål Steinnes, Head of Sales, Midstream, Wärtsilä Gas Solutions.

In September 2022, Wärtsilä and Maersk developed a means for preventing corrosion in scrubber discharge pipes.

More recently, Wärtsilä Voyage signed a contract for a five-year framework agreement with Associated British Ports (ABP) to digitalise port operations.
