Golar LNG Orders Compressed Air System from TMC

September 5, 2019

Norwegian company TMC Compressors of the Seas (TMC) has is to supply a compressed air system for a Golar LNG floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) vessel.

TMC will manufacture and deliver seven large Smart Air compressors to be installed on the FLNG Gimi which is currently in Singapore where it is undergoing conversion from a Moss liquefied natural gas (LNG) carrier to an FLNG unit.

Hans Petter Tanum, TMC’s sales and business development director, commented: “Our Smart Air compressor technology offers precise control of the compressor speed, which means that they can run more efficiently than traditional compressors. As a result, Smart Air compressors offer up to 50 percent reduction in energy consumption, with similar reduction in CO2 emissions and operational costs.”

Gimi FLNG is expected to produce about 2.5 million tonnes of LNG a year. Tanum added: “Golar LNG is dedicated to reducing both the environmental footprint and operating expenditure of the Gimi FLNG. Our Smart Air compressors are specially designed for marine application and lowest possible energy consumption, so I believe they are a good match for the vessel’s strict requirements.”
