Wärtsilä’s full scope of supply includes the system engineering, a dedicated material package, the boil-off gas compressor (BOGC) skid delivery, as well as the supervision, commissioning, and testing of the FGS systems.

This type of vessel is a model of Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding’s high-end marine equipment, and its high-end, intelligent and green features are highly recognized by users and the international shipbuilding industry, demonstrating Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding’s leading position in the international shipbuilding field.
