International compressor supplier TMC Compressors (TMC) has been awarded a contract by Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) to supply a marine compressed air system to a new-build floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU).
TMC’s scope of work includes engineering, manufacturing and supply of a complete compressed air system for the FSRU, which is being built by DSME for BW LNG.

Under the contract, TMC will supply 3 x 40 kW frequency controlled control air compressors and 3 x 40 kW service air compressors. The contract value is undisclosed.
“Any FSRU is a vital component in the LNG value chain. That is why DSME and BW LNG have opted for compressors that are built especially for marine application, as continuous uptime is crucial for both the on board compressor system and the vessel as a whole,” says Per Kjellin, managing director of TMC.
DSME is currently constructing the 134,400 cbm LNG FSRU at its Okpo shipyard in South Korea. The FSRU is expected to be delivered in November 2019.
TMC is the world’s leading supplier of compressed air systems for marine and offshore use. The company is a thoroughbred supplier of marine compressors, based on 40 years’ heritage in the marine and offshore industries. The company is headquartered in Oslo, with sales and service offices all over the world.
