Bestobell’s fuel gas systems ordered for LNG-fueled tankers

Bestobell Marine, a supplier of cryogenic globe and check valves for ships has received its first order to supply fuel gas valves for new build tankers.

The vessels in question are two 15,000-dwt ice-class 1A asphalt and bitumen tankers , which have been ordered by Groupe Desgagnés of Canada and will be built at Besiktas shipyard in Turkey, the company said in a statement.

The ships will be equipped with dual-fuel engines allowing them to operate on LNG and fuel oil, and will have 600 cbm gas storage tanks on the decks.

The vessels will then serve the Great Lakes and Canada’s St. Lawrence River.
