Global LNG market service provider Gloryholder Liquified Gas Machinery (DL) Co., Ltd (LGM Engineering) at the end of December said in July 2020, it won the general contract to supply the liquified natural gas (LNG) gas supply system for a 95,000 dwt dual-fuel bulk carrier being built at Oshima Shipyard (Oshima).
The vessel was ordered by NYK Line and has already been accredited by Japanese classification society Class NK.
LGM Engineering will be responsible for providing a complete LNG supply system from the designing and manufacturing the system, equipment installation guidance, system debugging, conducting gas trials and crew training services.
Oshima Shipyard has been carrying out quality assessments on LGM Engineering over the past five years and the company has improved its products to meet the strict quality assessment requirements of Japanese shipyards.
The company said the undertaking of this project will not only be the first official cooperation between LGM Engineering and a domestic Japanese shipyard, but also a new milestone for the company in the international market for LNG dual-fuel vessel gas supply systems.
LGM Engineering believes that it will eventually gain more recognition from Japanese customers with its strong technical strength, reliable product quality and experience in system integration, laying a firm foundation for it to further develop within the Japanese market.
