Three new state-of-the-art 27,000 cbm LNG/Multigas Carriers for Evergas, the Denmark based transporter of petrochemical gases and natural gas liquids, are to be built featuring the integrated Wärtsilä solution, comprising the main propulsion equipment, the gas fuel supply system, and the cargo handling system. This order is an extension of the one placed in 2013 for a series of three similar vessels. The ships are being built by the Sinopacific Offshore & Engineering (SOE) shipyard in China, and feature an advanced design that offers very high efficiency and unparalleled flexibility. The order was signed in March 2014.
"Wärtsilä is extremely pleased to continue this valuable cooperation with Evergas and SOE. The concept that has been developed has proven to be extremely successful as evidenced by the fact that it is being continued for a further three vessels. Our integrated solution fully meets the design criteria for excellent fuel economy as well as superb redundancy," says Jaakko Eskola, Senior Executive Vice President & President, Ship Power, Wärtsilä Corporation.
