Four new Purus gas carriers to operate with Wärtsilä cargo handling systems
Wärtsilä’s cargo handling systems have been selected for four ammonia gas carrier vessels being built at Hyundai Mipo Dockyard for Purus.
The order in connection with the construction of 45,000 cbm capacity medium gas carriers ships was placed by HMD and booked by Wärtsilä in Q4 2023. HMD is a key customer of Wärtsilä in the region’s medium gas carrier market, and the two companies have cooperated on a number of newbuild projects.
The Wärtsilä equipment is scheduled for delivery to the yard in Q3 2024, and the first of the four ships is expected to commence commercial operations in the latter half of 2025.
