The technology group Wartsila has won the contract to supply the Cargo Handling and Fuel Supply systems for six new 93,000 m3 capacity Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG) carrier vessels. The ships are being built at the Jiangnan Shipyard in China for Singapore-based Petredec. The order with Wartsila was placed in March 2021.

These will be among the largest vessels of this type ever built. They will be fitted with Wartsila’s well-proven and highly efficient Cargo Handling system and the unique Wartsila LPG Fuel Supply system (LFSS). Wartsila is currently the only company with LFSSs in operation, and has also a significant number of these units on order. The onboard Wartsila solutions will be supported with the company’s digital Operational Performance Improvement and Monitoring (OPERIM) system to provide real-time data that will allow optimal operational efficiency at all times.
