Atlas Copco wins compressor order

11 November 2017

Atlas Copco Gas and Process Division has secured a breakthrough compressor order for the LNG carrier market in Asia. The order, placed by Samsung Heavy Industries in Korea, is for a total of four centrifugal gas compressors, four gas screw compressors along with the necessary heaters and vaporisers, to be used on two Korean vessels. 

The compressors will be deployed aboard two small scale LNG carrier vessels for the ships’ cargo handling system. The vapour return compressors will provide tank pressure control during loading and the fuel-gas compressors will feed excess boil-off gas to the gas engine during operation.
