Marine equipment and solutions for LNG as fuel
Helping you secure the gas advantage
A growing number of shipowners are powering their vessels with LNG. Whether you’ve already made that choice or are still exploring the possibilities, Alfa Laval can help you on your way. In over fifty years of work with gas, beginning with cargo and expanding into LNG as fuel, we’ve developed the equipment, knowledge and services to bring you effective solutions. From ensuring safety to boosting efficiency and further reducing emissions, you’ll find what you need to get maximum benefit from LNG.
Products and solutions
Aalborg boiler solutions
Alfa Laval Aalborg dual-fuel boilers are more than an efficient solution for your steam and hot water needs. Able to handle both free flow and methane mixed with inert gas, they provide safe, effective ways to manage boil-off gas (BOG) and simplify operations connected with tank inspection.
Today you can cut methane slip by up to 50% while reducing your LNG consumption. The Alfa Laval PureCool cascade exhaust gas cooling system is the heart of iCER technology, an option for next-generation WinGD X-DF engines. Besides reducing emissions, choosing iCER can increase your fuel efficiency by 3%.
Alfa Laval has robust solutions for use in gas fuel supply systems, which place high demands on thermal equipment. The high-pressure FCM LNG makes use of diffusion-bonded printed circuit heat exchanger (PCHE) technology.
Gas Combustion Unit
On LNG carriers, the Alfa Laval Gas Combustion Unit (GCU) is a safe, high-capacity solution for managing boil-off gas (BOG) when it cannot be used for propulsion. The simple – and therefore reliable – design is enhanced in the GCU 2.0, which is equipped for connectivity and has an even longer lifetime.
Smit LNG inert gas system
The Alfa Laval Smit LNG system is a combustion-type inert gas generator, built on five decades of experience with inert gas supply. It produces inert gas with a low dew point, which meets the requirement for very dry and high-quality inert gas on LNG carriers.
Service and support
The high demands of working with LNG make service a priority. Alfa Laval’s global service organization is available for you 24/7, both physically and digitally. Our service experts help ensure the safety and reliability you depend on, but also the efficiency that can make the difference for cost-effective gas operations.
Alfa Laval Test & Training Centre
Reliability is paramount in equipment for LNG use. Alfa Laval achieves it not only through years of experience, but also through extensive testing at the Alfa Laval Test & Training Centre. This unique facility has an entire section dedicated to ensuring safe, efficient gas operations.
