30 August 2023 – Hanwha Ocean has selected Norway-based TMC Compressors to deliver the complete marine compressed air system to six LNG carriers the Korean shipbuilder will deliver to Mitsui OSK Lines (MOL).

Hanwha Ocean – formerly Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering – has selected TMC to provide control, service air and nitrogen feed air compressors to each of the six vessels. TMC has not disclosed the value of the contract.

The six LNG carriers will each have a capacity of 174,000 cubic metres LNG.

“We are highly familiar with both the vessel type and the shipbuilder, and Hanwha Ocean knows us and our technology equally well. We are delighted to once again be given the opportunity to supply our energy-efficient compressors to them,” says Hans Petter Tanum, TMC’s director of sales and business development.

TMC will manufacture the equipment in Europe and ship it Hanwha Ocean in South Korea.

“The quality of our manufacturing and assembly facilities are extremely high, which we continuously prove through timeliness of deliveries and robustness of our products. This is key to secure repeat orders from high-quality shipbuilders such as Hanwha Ocean,” adds Tanum.

TMC is headquartered in Oslo, Norway. The company is globally recognised as the leading supplier of compressed air systems for marine and offshore use.
