22 August 2022 – Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) has chosen TMC Compressors (TMC) to deliver a complete marine compressed air system to four LNG carriers the Korean shipbuilder is constructing for Greek shipowner GasLog.

TMC will supply three control and service air compressors to each of the four LNG carriers. In addition, TMC will provide feed air compressors to the vessels’ N2 (nitrogen) system.

Norway-headquartered TMC will manufacture the equipment in the Nordic region and ship it to DSME in Korea.

“Life at sea can be tough and this requires dependable machinery. Our compressors have been designed so that the vessel crew can maintain them if and when required. It is a time and money saving approach that resonates well with crew, shipyards and shipowners,” says Hans Petter Tanum, TMC’s director of sales and business development.

TMC will supply its energy efficient single stage, oil-lubricated marine screw compressor to the four LNG carriers. These are designed and manufactured for continuous operation in high ambient temperatures.

The new liquified natural gas carriers will have a capacity of 174,000 cubic metres. DMSE will deliver the four vessels during 2024 and 2025.

TMC is the world’s leading supplier of compressed air systems for marine and offshore use.
