International compressor supplier TMC Compressors (TMC) has been awarded a contract to supply complete marine compressed air systems for two VLCCs currently being built by Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME) in South Korea.

Under the contract, TMC will supply a control air compressor system and a service air compressor system to each of the two vessels. Contract value is undisclosed.

DSME is currently constructing the two VLCCs (very large crude carriers) for Singapore-based BW Tankers, a subsidiary of the BW Group. Both VLCCs will be 318,000 dwt and are scheduled to be delivered in 2018.

“The new-build market for VLCCs has been quite flat in the past couple of years, so securing some of the orders around is key for any supplier in this segment. In a challenging market, a ship-owner will always veer towards the most reliable technology. Hence, we believe this order confirms our ability to combine market-leading compressor quality with competitive prices,” says Per Kjellin, managing director of TMC.
