Specialised Cargo Handling System Design for Very Large Ethane Carriers 

Four new 98,000 cbm Very Large Ethane Carriers under construction in South Korea will feature tailor-made cargo handling designs from Wärtsilä Gas Solutions. The ships will operate on ethane fuel and the Wärtsilä systems include a highly efficient reliquefaction unit and a unique high-pressure ethane fuel supply system. The entire solution will be connected to Wärtsilä’s in-house developed remote monitoring and diagnosis tool, Operim, for efficient operational optimisation.

Wärtsilä is a leading provider of cargo handling systems, and we are very confident with their designs and performance. Selecting Wärtsilä will ensure timely delivery with the highest quality standards for these unique vessels.
