KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 24 -- Gas Entec Co Ltd (Gas Entec) has secured an important contract from Sembcorp Marine Integrated Yard Pte Ltd (Sembcorp Marine) to design and build cargo handling system for Asia’s largest LNG bunker vessel.
Gas Entec is a subsidiary of Atlantic Gulf & Pacific Company (AG&P), a leading global gas and LNG logistics company.
Under the contract, Gas Entec will provide the engineering, procurement and construction of the cargo handling system for a 12,000 cubic metre LNG bunker vessel owned by Indah Singa Maritime, a subsidiary of Mitsui OSK Lines, operating out of Singapore.
“Gas Entec is honoured to work with Sembcorp Marine for the landmark 12,000 CBM LNG bunker vessel project, which will be the largest bunker ship to operate in Asia when it enters in service in 2021,” said Gas Entec chief executive officer, Chong-Ho Kwak.
The LNG bunker vessel will be built at Sembcorp Marine Tuas Boulevard Yard in Singapore, whereby Gas Entec engineers will work with their counterparts to oversee the cargo handling project.
The vessel will use GTT Flex III membrane technology for the cargo containment tanks and have dual-fuel engines running on LNG or marine diesel oil for cleaner propulsion.
Gas Entec is the world standard in engineering for small- and mid-scale LNG infrastructure and other applications with specific expertise in cargo containment, handling and fuel gas supply systems for floating LNG terminals, bunker vessels and ships using LNG as a fuel.
