TGE Marine to supply fuel gas systems to Höegh Autoliners car carriers

28 Jul 2022

Liquefied gas systems’ provider TGE Marine Gas Engineering (TGE Marine) on Wednesday (27 July) said it received an order from the Chinese shipbuilding group China Merchants Heavy Industry for the delivery of eight fuel gas systems and associated multi-fuel gas tanks. 

These systems will be installed on the new Aurora Class of Oslo-based ship owner Höegh Autoliners AS, according to TGE Marine in a social media post. 

The Aurora class vessels will be the largest and most environmentally friendly car carriers ever built and with DNV’s ammonia- and methanol-ready notation, they are the first in the PCTC segment to be able to operate on zero carbon ammonia. 

TGE Marine is very proud to deliver the multi-fuel gas tanks which are capable of receiving LNG, ammonia and methanol, said the firm. 

TGE Marine’s fuel gas system comes with an “innovative concept for handling the boil-off gas”, ensuring safe operations in all circumstances in unison with minimal OPEX costs and vastly reduced fugitive emissions.

TGE Marine’s Senior Sales Manager Dieter Hilmes said: “We are very pleased and proud to be both the owner’s and yard’s strategic partner, from the initial stages of the new concept development right through to the gas trial which is scheduled for the end of 2024 for the first vessel.”
