LNG Cargo Handling System for a new 5400 m3 LNG bunker barge 

The technology group Wärtsilä will supply its LNG Cargo Handling System for a new 5400 m3 LNG bunker barge being built in the USA. This latest order further endorses Wärtsilä’s leading position in LNG systems for the marine sector, and its key role in supporting the growing acceptance of LNG fuel by North American owners and operators. The barge is being built at the Fincantieri Bay Shipbuilding yard in Wisconsin on behalf of NorthStar Midstream. It will be operated by the company’s marine transportation company Polaris New Energy (PNE). The order with Wärtsilä was placed in August 2019.

LNG is undoubtedly becoming fast established as a sustainable fuel option to reduce shipping’s environmental footprint. That’s why LNG solutions are of strategic interest to our organization. Our selection of Wärtsilä to supply the cargo handling system helps mitigate risk and assures the success of this latest project.
Todd Thayse, Vice President and General Manager, Fincantieri Bay Shipbuilding
