Burckhardt Compression awarded long-term service agreement for 9 LNG carriers

Burckhardt Compression and an emerging leader in the Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) shipping industry signed a five-year service agreement covering nine LNG carriers with Laby®-GI Compressors onboard. Building on their close and long-term partnership, the two companies jointly developed a lifecycle concept based on the operational experience gained in the field.

This marks a major milestone in Burckhardt Compression’s push to offer lifecycle solutions tailored to customer needs. The new long-term service agreement (LTSA) will bring considerable added value to the customer's operation, such as improved lifecycle costs, operational efficiency and accurate preventive maintenance.
