MAN Cryo, part of MAN Energy Solutions and a leading expert in the field of storage and handling of LNG and natural gas, has announced the signing of a contract with Yantai CIMC Raffles Shipyard for the delivery of the fuel-gas supply systems (FGSSs) to a new series of two dual-fuel, 6,500 pure car carriers for Wallenius Marine on charter to Volkswagen.

Henrik Malm, Managing Director at MAN Energy Solutions, Sweden and Finland, said: “This represents yet another world-first for MAN Cryo where the boil-off gas will be sent to the low methane-slip ME-GI via a high-pressure, boil-off-gas compressor. Due to the installed shaft generator, this further reduces the running hours on the auxiliary engines.

The scope of delivery includes the following:

  • port- and starboard-side bunkering stations
  • LNG storage tank with a volume of 2,300 m3
  • tank connection space with low-pressure vaporizer, BOG heater and two LNG pumps
  • high-pressure gas-handling equipment for delivery of gas to MAN B&W ME-GI two-stroke main engine
  • boil-off gas (BOG) management system, including one high-pressure compressor
  • on-board nitrogen-generation system
  • control system as well as gas-detection system.

The FGSSs for the vessels will be delivered during 2023.

MAN Cryo towards a cleaner shipping

MAN Cryo offers systems for the storage, distribution and handling of liquefied gases and has a pioneering reputation within the marine sector and LNG business development. It supplied the world’s first LNG fuel-gas system for the “Glutra” ferry in Norway in 1999, a vessel that is still operational to this day. More recently, in 2013, MAN Cryo supplied the world’s first bunker vessel, the “SeaGas”, with operations in Stockholm, Sweden.
