Laxman Pai

Swiss firm specialising in reciprocating compressors, Burckhardt Compression AG is outfitting a 30,000 m3 LNG carrier operated by Knutsen OAS Shipping AS with Laby compressors.

The Laby compressors will be delivered to Hyundai Mipo Dockyard as part of the fuel gas supply system built by Wärtsilä Oil & Gas Solutions and will supply the LNG carrier's WinGD X-DF 2-stroke, dual-fuel engine with LNG boil-off gas as fuel.

The X-DF engine, a two-stroke engine from Winterthur Gas & Diesel, allows both natural gas and marine diesel to be used as fuel for ship propulsion systems.

Ship operators can switch between the two fuel types, maritime diesel and the boil-off gas that inevitably evaporates from LNG storage tanks, during operation.

Burckhardt Compression is the only manufacturer and service provider that covers a full range of reciprocating compressor technologies and services.
