From our ongoing research in maritime marked we focus on use of new proven materials and methods where the design shall make the application easier. Maritime marked is conservative , however its also experienced. We aim to cooperate with clients and customers that values quality and our normally 5 year operational technical guarantee for our products. Aerogels, Vacuum, environmentally PU Spray foam, reinforcements and flexible mechanical outer barriers materials are our speciality.

We aim to deliver the lowest BOR on the marked .Liquefaction of Gasses able safer and more efficient storage/transportation as it reduces volume over 600 times. It is commonly used in maritime transportation . To change a medium from Gas Phase to a Liquid Phase, the media is cooled down. Huge super-coolers at Refineries ensures the cryogenic temperatures required for the liquid phase of Cargo’s such as Liquid Natural Gas, “LNG” ( -163C), Liquid Ethylene Gas “LEG” ( -105C) and Liquid Petroleum Gas “LPG”( -46C).

LNG and LPG are recognized as clean energy sources and LEG is main component in plastic industry world wide.

To be able to keep Cargo Cool and in its liquid phase during transportation, adequate insulation is required. Insulation shall besides of keeping cargo cold and tank pressure from rising also avoid the ship hull to get cold. Most common ship hull structures become brittle under -20oC and can cause ship hull structure to “break as glass”. Risk of tank leakage, fire and explosion from the highly flammable Cargo is another thing insulation must deal with. In recent years environmental rules have also required more green insulation solutions.To Transport Cryogenic cold Liquids between tanks, adequate pipe insulation is required to avoid gassing in pipe, keep fast charging/discharging rate, prevent pressure build up, ice formations and loss of cargo.

On of the main challenges of pipe insulation is the large thermal contraction and expansion of the pipe the insulation is fitted around. Pipes are also almost always installed outside in harsh environment as on ships deck and on receiving terminals or in compressor rooms with high temperatures and vibrations.

Pipe insulation is seldom more than 100mm thick and and any carelessness during application and jointing of pipe insulation segments can cause huge damage. Besides of choosing the right materials, typical failures are insufficient sealing of pipe insulation layers at insulation termination points and around gauges, lack of insulation contraction measures, poor workman ship etc. A small crack in the insulation layers will allow humidity/ water/ sea water to enter into the insulation layers. Water expands in solid form ( ice) and virtually “eats up” or crushes the insulation structure over time.

Accordingly, any carelessness in cold insulation design and work will cause huge problems for Liquid Gas Cargo ship operation. Heat is constantly transferred from energy sources ( Sun, Engine room, Ocean, Vibrations etc ) by Radiation, Convection and Thermal bridging in materials. Our Cryogenic Insulation “mission” is to minimize the ways energy can get into the tank to ensure that the loss by evaporation is kept to an absolute minimum. Huge amounts of Vaporizing LNG/LPG can be saved every day by choosing the right materials and insulation system.
