ACD has received an order from TGE Marine Gas Engineering to supply LNG fuel gas supply pumps for a new LNG carrier from MEYER WERFT GmbH.
The new tanker will transport LNG with a cargo capacity of 15,600 cbm. The vessel will be Bureau Veritas (BV) classified and meet the highest environmental standards.
Delivery of the LNG fuel gas supply pumps is slated for May 2012, with the new vessel delivery scheduled for the end of 2012, gasworld understands.
The fuel supply pumps, ACD model TC-34, are submerged pumps designed to supply LNG from the cargo tank through a vaporiser system and feed low pressure natural gas to MAN’s 4-stroke engine.
“We are excited to be partners with TGE and utilise our standard submerged products for this new and exciting LNG fuels market. This is a great opportunity to blend proven pump technology with market leaders to not only lower operating costs using LNG, but also meet increasing IMO emission standards,” says Richard Young, Deputy Managing Director of ACD.
ACD is an original equipment manufacturer of cryogenic pump systems and turboexpanders. The company’s submerged TC-34 pump is regarded as the global leader for LNG and LCNG vehicle fueling stations, as well as mobile LAR and LIN applications, with over 2,000 in operation.
“The reliability of the TC-34 pump has made it an industry standard. Using these pumps, engine manufacturers and fuel gas system suppliers such as TGE, are able to meet system design specifications and have confidence that our product will meet performance criteria,” added Young.
ACD is a member of Cryogenic Industries and has 15 worldwide sales and service locations to provide equipment sales, service, spare parts, and training for all ACD products.
