FSRU Bangladesh LNG import facility at the Moheshkhali Floating LNG terminal plays a critical role in meeting the country’s growing energy needs but can face challenging weather conditions during the hot, humid summer season or extremely wet monsoon season.
Since its commissioning in August 2018, the facility has employed a new fast connection element to its hose transfer system that the UK-based designer and manufacturer reported delivers decreased LNG transfer time and increased crew safety.
Ship-to-ship and ship-to-shore (STS) LNG transfer systems manufacturer Klaw LNG, a Signum Technology company, reported its CryoCL can deliver up to 50 times faster connection times than the traditional nut and bolt method. Operational efficiencies are also improved with multiple lines.
According to Klaw LNG, new technology is also a great step forward in terms of safety. Faster connection and disconnection times reduce exposure for crew on deck, which can be particularly acute in extreme hot or cold environments. This simpler method of connection also means operators are less exposed to the risk of hand injuries.
“This is another example of Signum driving technology forward with new product development investment focused on delivering solutions and real benefits to operators both in terms of efficiency and safety,” said Signum Technology sales and compliance director Jeff Vile.
The CryoCL is part of the 10-inch LNG hose transfer system supplied by Klaw LNG for the Moheshkhali Floating LNG terminal.
