Wartsila Corporation, Press release, April 24, 2024, at 10 AM EEST

Wartsila Gas Solutions, part of technology group Wartsila , will supply the cargo handling system for a new 12,500 m3 LNG bunkering vessel being built for Spanish shipowner Scale Gas, a subsidiary of Engages, the owner and operator of Spain’s gas grid. The vessel is co-financed from the Support for Sustainable and Digital Transport Programmer, part of the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan from the Spanish Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda.

In placing the order, Wartsila experience and market leading position in small-scale LNG applications was emphasized. The company’s ability to engineer, design and deliver a complete system, including boiler-off gas (BOG) management, integrated fuel supply, custody transfer and bunkering transfer systems, was central to the contract award.

“The number of LNG-fueled vessels continues to increase, which in turn means that more LNG bunkering ships are needed. We are the leader in this segment for both ship and tank building, Wartsila experience and track-record is recognized, so we select them for this project,” said David Wei, Director of Purchase Department, CIMC SOE.

“The trend towards LNG represents the industry’s transition to greater environmental sustainability, and we are extremely pleased to support this with modern and reliable systems that optimize overall cargo handling efficiency,” says Harald Overland, Sales Manager, Wartsila Gas Solutions.
