NG3 TANK for LNG carriers

This innovation aims at increasing the environmental and economical performance of membrane LNG carriers using the ply wood box insulation, technology by flushing the insulation spaces with argon instead of nitrogen.

The expected gain is a reduction of around 5% of the Boil Off Gas rate, increasing by 1% the unloaded quantities.

This innovation was laureate of the 2008 French ministry of research competition for creation of innovative companies with a 300 000 € prize to develop the corresponding Argon storage and recycling unit (ASSU, Argon Storage and Separation Unit), meeting LNG carriers operational and safety requirements.
