TMC Compressors (TMC) has been chosen to supply the marine compressed air system to several LNG Carriers that Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME) is building for Greek shipowner Maran Gas Maritime.
TMC’s scope of work is to deliver 3 x service and control air compressors to each of the eight LNG carriers, which will have a cargo capacity of 174,000 cubic metres LNG.
Maran Gas Maritime is a unit of Angelicoussis Shipping Group.
“Over the past decade, TMC has been the favoured supplier of marine compressed air systems to LNG vessels. Such vessels are part of a green shipping wave dedicated to reducing CO2 emissions and other harmful emissions to air. Our compressors have been designed so that the vessel crew can maintain the compressors themselves without the need for an external service technician. This approach reflects the shipping industry’s requirement to reduce both operating expenditure and its environmental footprint,” says Hans Petter Tanum, TMC’s director of sales and business development.
TMC is the world’s leading supplier of compressed air systems for marine and offshore use. The company is headquartered in Oslo, Norway.
