Burckhardt Compression gains numerous orders for fuel gas supply solution


Burckhardt Compression garners success with its patented Laby®-GI fuel gas supply solution for dual- and tri-fuel ship propulsion systems – after the company receives numerous orders.

Vibration-free reciprocating compressors will be used to supply fuel gas to energy-efficient, environmentally friendly dual-fuel ship propulsion systems. These compressors were ordered between December 2014 and March 2015 and will be installed on several liquefied natural gas (LNG) tankers with a carrying capacity of 174,000 m3 each.
