TGE Marine Gas Engineering GmbH is a market-leading provider of engineering services for the design and supply of gas carriers, fuel gas systems and offshore units. We deliver turnkey solutions for engineering, design, procurement and construction supervision (EPCS) of marine gas handling and storage systems as well as vessel designs. We specialise in the containment and handling of cryogenically stored gases (which are often both highly toxic and flammable), and are the market leader in the ethylene carrier and small LNG carrier segment.
TGE Marine is a pioneer in the dynamic field of LNG fuel gas systems and LNG bunkering. The company partners closely with ship owners and shipyards to offer design-led engineering expertise in the conversion of conventional HFO engines to LNG fuel gas systems.
Most of our customers are commercial shipyards which build gas carrier ships. To date, we have supplied gas handling and storage systems to more than 150 gas carriers constructed at more than 20 shipyards across Europe, Asia and South America. Since 1989, we have been operating in China and have supplied gas plants for virtually all gas carriers built for international shipowners.
Our contracts have included the world’s largest purpose-built ethylene carrier and the world’s largest LPG FSO. Our design for the Isabella Kosan recently won the Lloyd’s List Ship of the Year Award in recognition of its outstanding environmental, operational and technical features. Furthermore, we were responsible for the design and delivery of the cargo system and cargo tanks for the Coral Methane, the first combined LNG/ethylene carrier with an electric propulsion system.
- Providing technical excellence at highly competitive prices
Our two most important goals are technological excellence and execution efficiency in delivering outstanding value to shipyards and shipowners alike.
- Capturing new opportunities in LNG, fuel gas systems and CO2
We have committed substantial research and development expenditure toward evolving our core products in order to address new markets (e.g. small LNG, LNG fuel gas systems and CO2carriers) and utilise new technologies.
The Group was founded in 1980 as “Liquid Gas International” (LGI) and in 1993, was acquired by Tractebel/Suez operating as “Tractebel Gas Engineering”.
Since an MBO in 2006, the Group has been called “TGE Marine AG” (“TGE Marine Gas Engineering GmbH”).
