Chart Industries, Inc. has been awarded a contract by LGM Engineering to supply four LNG fuel tanks.
The fuel tanks, supplied by Chart, will power two 22 dead weight tonne (dwt) chemical tankers with clean burning natural gas. The ships will be built in Wuhu Shipyard, China and owned by Rederi AB Donsõtank from Sweden.
“We thank LGM Engineering for this order and are excited to be working with them on this project,” said Robert Chen, Chart’s President of Distribution and Storage Asia.
“With International Maritime Organisation (IMO) 2020 regulations coming into force on 1st January (2020), reducing the maximum sulfur content of marine fuel from the current 3.5% to 0.5%, Chart’s technology is integral to the increased number of LNG powered ships on international waters and the bunkering infrastructure required to fuel them.”
The tanks will be designed and manufactured at Chart’s Changzhou, China facility and classified by DNV GL in accordance with associated regulations.
