Atlas Copco to supply gas compressors to Samsung Heavy Industries

COLOGNE — Turbomachinery manufacturer Atlas Copco Gas and Process Division has secured a compressor order for the Carrier LNG market in Asia. The order—placed by Samsung Heavy Industries in Korea—is for a total of four centrifugal gas compressors, four gas screws compressors along with the necessary heaters and vaporizers, to be used on two Korean vessels.

Featuring a compact design tailored for the needs of the smaller vessels, the compressors will be deployed aboard two small-scale liquefied natural gas carrier (LNGC) vessels, for the ships’ cargo handling system.

Specifically, the vapor return compressors will provide tank pressure control during loading and the fuel-gas compressors will feed excess boil-off gas to the gas engine during operation. With a capacity of 173,000m3–263,000 m3, the vessels will join the fleet of Kogas, Korea’s public natural gas company.
