Knutsen OAS Shipping selects Laby® compressors from Burckhardt Compression

Burckhardt Compression 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.
