Wärtsilä was tapped to supply an integrated package of sustainable solutions for China's first seagoing LNG bunker vessel, scheduled for delivery in 2020.

The ship is being built by the Dalian Shipbuilding Industry Corporation (DSIC) for an affiliate of the ENN Energy holdings, one of the largest users of LNG in China. It has been designed by China Ship Design & Research Center Co. Ltd. Wärtsilä will provide the vessel's cargo handling system, the Wärtsilä 34DF dual-fuel main engine, the gearbox, controlled pitch propeller (CPP), shaft generator, two Wärtsilä 20DF dual-fuel auxiliary engines, and the ship's sewage treatment plant. The integrated gas, propulsion, and waste treatment systems are designed to deliver high efficiency with stable and clean operations. The equipment is scheduled for delivery in early 2020.

The 8500 cu. m. capacity vessel is the first newbuilding LNG bunkering vessel for ENN Energy Holdings and is part of the Group's ambition to play an active role in the international marine LNG fuel supplier market. With this bunker vessel, ENN will be capable of supplying fuel to the world's biggest LNG fueled vessels.
