Expansion at the KLAW LNG Technology Center
KLAW LNG, the market and technical leaders in the design, manufacture, and application of ship-to-ship and bunkering LNG transfer systems has expanded its manufacturing and test facilities at the Great Yarmouth Technology Centre.
Signum Technology is committed to ensuring KLAW LNG continues to be the industry leader in LNG hose transfer systems. This significant additional investment has been made to support the growing customer demand for KLAW LNG transfer systems.
The investment is spread across various parts of the Great Yarmouth facility from manufacturing and assembly to systems testing. This includes:
Horizontal CNC Lathe
Hi-TECH 850 provides a reliable precision production resource for the manufacture of KLAW LNG 8” and 10” Cryogenic High Flow Emergency Release Couplings.
LNG ERC assembly clean room and low-temperature testing
A dedicated clean assembly room has been created to fully assemble and test Cryogenic ERCs. Each valve has an ambient gas seat test and shell test followed by a low temp shell and seat test at -140 degrees C.
System FAT area
Additional workshop space is being developed in Great Yarmouth currently to allow expansion of the KLAW LNG offering and accommodate full acceptance testing.
Signum continues to invest in skilled workshop personnel and engineering staff to support order fulfillment and in-house manufacture of safety-critical components. To keep pace with demand, additional project and application engineers are also being added to the KLAW LNG design team at the Westbury UK Technology Centre.
KLAW LNG transfer systems provide offshore hose LNG transfer in ship-to-ship, shore-to-ship and bunkering. KLAW LNG Emergency Release Systems minimize the risk of LNG spillage by shutting down flow of LNG when an emergency occurs during transfer.
As discussed in the HPI Market Data 2019 report, published in November by Gas Processing & LNG’s sister publication, Hydrocarbon Processing, rising propane and ethane supplies in the US have been enabled by greater production of shale gas.
Industry Trends: Norway targets global LNG market
Norway aims to become a leading player in the global LNG market during the next several years through the establishment of new, large-scale LNG terminals.
Regional Focus: Challenges of scaling up Africa’s LNG production
Several gas projects are underway in Africa, but they continue to be constrained by inadequate infrastructure, slow finance mobilization, lack of security and uncertainty over hydrocarbon regulations that are casting doubt on the outcome of the continent’s drive to meet its anticipated 128% gas demand increase by 2040.
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.
