Atlas Copco to supply gas compressors to Samsung Heavy Industries
COLOGNE — Turbomachinery manufacturer Atlas Copco Gas and Process Division has secured a compressor order for the Carrier LNG market in Asia. The order—placed by Samsung Heavy Industries in Korea—is for a total of four centrifugal gas compressors, four gas screws compressors along with the necessary heaters and vaporizers, to be used on two Korean vessels.
Featuring a compact design tailored for the needs of the smaller vessels, the compressors will be deployed aboard two small-scale liquefied natural gas carrier (LNGC) vessels, for the ships’ cargo handling system.
Specifically, the vapor return compressors will provide tank pressure control during loading and the fuel-gas compressors will feed excess boil-off gas to the gas engine during operation. With a capacity of 173,000m3–263,000 m3, the vessels will join the fleet of Kogas, Korea’s public natural gas company.
GasPro 2.0: A Webcast Symposium
The global LNG industry is becoming increasingly interconnected as grassroots export projects get off the ground. Another technology route for processing gas into fuels—GTL—is attracting renewed attention due to improving economics. Small-scale solutions for both LNG and GTL are at the forefront of new technological developments, while major projects using more conventional technologies continue to start up around the world.
During this webcast, we will focus on LNG, GTL, gas processing technology developments and deployments, operations, small-scale solutions, transportation, trading, distribution, safety, regulatory affairs, business analysis and more.
