Air Products to deliver nitrogen systems for LNG vessels

LNG Industry,

Air Products AS in Kristiansand, Norway, has received an order of PRISM® nitrogen systems for onboard vessels. The order involves retrofitting 25 LNG vessels by replacing existing nitrogen systems with a new one that uses Air Products’ PRISM® membrane technology.


“This order is evidence of the high performance and reliability of Air Products’ PRISM nitrogen systems for onsite gas generation. The continuous supply of nitrogen that these systems provide onboard LNG carriers is of vital importance in securing the vessels’ safety, both at sea and during loading and offloading of fuels,” commented Rune Damsgaard, business director of Air Products Norway.

Each of the shipboard nitrogen systems is engineered with Air Products’ PRISM® membrane separators, manufactured at the company’s facility in St. Louis, Missouri. PRISM membrane separators contain polymeric hollow fibers that use selective permeation under differential pressure to separate nitrogen from oxygen and other elements.
