    We design bunkering facilities for supplying liquefied natural gas as part of our efforts to help build a more environmentally friendly future.

 

LNG as a driver of environmental sustainability

The IMO (International Maritime Organization) has adopted measures to reduce GHG emissions from international shipping by at least 50%. As an environmentally friendly option, LNG (liquefied natural gas) looks set to become the most widely used alternative energy source in coming years. Replacing liquid fossil fuels currently in use, such as marine diesel oil and bunker fuel, with natural gas will undoubtedly result in a significant reduction in CO2 emissions and, even more importantly, in the almost total elimination of NOx (nitrogen oxides) and SOx (sulphur oxides).

To do this, being able to efficiently transport natural gas is essential. The solution isLNG, natural gas that has been cooled down using cryogenics, resulting in its volume being shrunk so that it takes up around 600 times less space than when in its gaseous form. This makes it easier and cheaper to supply from shore and store in ships.

Of the more than 60,000 cargo and passenger ships worldwide, only around 200 are fuelled by LNG. However, as a result of international requirements, this figure looks set to increase exponentially over the coming years. As a result, we will continue to see increased demand for bunkering facilities at ports and in areas where ships and tugboats sail. Many of these will require high-capacity ship-to-shore and ship-to-ship facilities.

Over the past 5 years, we have played an active role in designing and supervising the majority of Spain’s LNG bunkering facilities, and are now taking this experience as well as the technology developed to other parts of the world.

Our expertise and technology

With an impressive portfolio of experience in LNG facilities, we have the expertise and are able to offer the technology needed to transition to cleaner energy sources.
LNG bunkering
We are able to design all the infrastructure required for supplying and refuelling ships with LNG, drawing on our extensive expertise to do this. There are currently four types of bunkering operations: ship-to-ship (STS), terminal-to-ship or pipe-to-ship (PTS), truck-to-ship (TTS) and the exchange of mobile cryogenic containers.
