Wärtsilä Inert Gas Generators for Gas Carriers

Our inert gas generator system, specialised for Gas Carriers, ensures the correct atmosphere in the cargo tanks and pipes to minimize the risk of explosion.

The system offers a high level of safety and are designed based on compact modules, offering important savings in space and installation cost for both newbuildings and retrofitting existing vessels.

Our most recent developments include higher capacity Wärtsilä Moss inert gas generator systems for new and larger LNG carriers requiring dry inert gas on-board, plus a combined inert gas system and gas combustion unit (GCU). Our newly developed integrated solution eliminates the need for a separate GCU and a safe and reliable gas combustion mode is implemented using the same equipment as the Wärtsilä Moss inert gas generator system.

    What is inert Gas

    Inert Gas is a gas or a mixture of gases, such as flue gas, containing insufficient oxygen to support the combustion of hydrocarbons. An Inert condition is a condition in which the oxygen content throughout the atmosphere of a tank has been reduced to 8% or less by volume.
