The LNG carriers have been ordered by GasLog LNG Services for time charter to Shell. ??In service, the units will be used to reduce boil-off rate (BOR) by up to 1.5 tph of LNG, allowing the efficient X-DF vessels to operate at a lower natural boil-off speed.

This new product from Air Liquide is a breakthrough solution in active boil-off gas (BOG) management. It requires little maintenance (5-years maintenance-free) and the units are simpler than existing reliquefaction systems. They are also relatively compact systems (supplied on a single skid). The units can be integrated into the existing BOG management system with minimal changes, which makes them suitable for both new-construction and retrofits.

A range of Turbo Brayton plants is available in various sizes for LNG BOG management on all LNG vessel types, including LNG bunker vessels, LNG carriers and LNG-fuelled vessels. The TBF-1050 units will be delivered in 2017 for integration into the vessel’s cargo BOG management system.
