Rolls-Royce gets in on the Golar FLNG deal

Rolls-Royce said it has secured a contract with Keppel Shipyard in Singapore to supply two all-gas engines for power generation onboard a floating liquefaction vessel owned by Golar LNG.

The vessel Hilli was a former LNG carrier and is being converted to a FLNGV carrier, the company said in a statement.

Bergen B35:40V20AG is a compact and powerful gas engine with low emissions of NOx, CO2, SOx and particulates. The power generated will be mainly used for the liquefaction processes, and also for supporting vessel operation and the energy needs of the crew onboard, Rolls-Royce said.

The contract with Keppel Shipyard includes an option for additional two engines for a second Golar LNG carrier to be converted, Gimi. The engines are scheduled for delivery next year and the conversion of Hilli is expected to be completed in first quarter of 2017.
