MAN ME-GI Engines

Lubricated and Non-Lubricated Compressor Solutions for MAN ME-GI Powered LNG Carriers

Burckhardt Compression offers a variety of compressor solutions for fuel gas compression that have been specifically designed for marine applications. Our ME-GI fuel gas compressor systems are designed for BOG management on LNG carriers equipped with MAN ME-GI two-stroke engines.

The well-proven Laby®-GI Compressors offer a power-efficient solution for fuel gas compression and support the optimization of the ship’s operational costs (OPEX). The fully balanced compressor system can supply gen-sets, the propulsion engine and the reliquefaction system. In addition, it can be operated in parallel to the pump vaporizer unit.
