MannTek LNG solutions deliver ship to ship transfer system to Antony Veder

MannTek has delivered a complete transfer system to Antony Veder which is going to be part of the modification of the LNG carrier Coral Methane into an LNG bunker vessel. Starting in 2019 to cover the LNG bunkering demands across Europe, the primary operating area is going to be the southern parts of the North Sea as well as the Mediterranean Sea. The system includes an 8 inch PERC and 6 inch MannTek Dry Cryogenic Couplings. The transfer line also includes the MannTek innovative designed nitrogen activated PERC's monitored and controlled by the high pressure nitrogen system (HPN2). The HPN2 monitors, controls and releases the PERC's by utilising high pressure Nitrogen and controls the pressure right to the face of the valve before and during the LNG transfer. Using an innovative low pressure nitrogen system which is monitored continuously ensures that on ESD2 the valve will separate. This system is also including a programmed PLC that monitors the transfer and has included automatic checks support. The system is SIL2 rated by DNV.

MannTek LNG solutions deliver shore to ship and truck terminal for LNG in Gothenburg

MannTek has delivered a LNG transfer system to Swedegas, who is building a bunkering facility for LNG in Gothenburg. The Transfer system which uses MannTek DCC and CBC-PERC couplings is going to be part of a construction that has been ongoing since winter and is scheduled to open in August 2018. The thought behind this facility is for vessels to be able to bunker LNG at the same time as the unloading and loading of cargo is going on.

During his trip through the country, Swedish Prime minister Stefan Löfven, visited MannTek, as his only stop in the region, for a tour through the factory.

MannTek has supplied couplings to Florida East Coast Railway 

Florida East Coast Railway has become the first North American railroad to adopt LNG (liquefied natural gas) for its entire line-haul locomotive fleet.

FECR on Nov. 9 officially rolled out its 24-unit fleet, consisting of 12 pairs of back-to-back GE ES44C4s with a purpose-built Chart Industries fuel tender in between, at Bowden Yard, Jacksonville. FECR, a Class II regional, is also the first railroad to haul LNG as a commodity, under a Federal Railroad Administration waiver.

FAT for Coralius

The FAT for the LNG Transfer System supplied to Coralius included two PERC's that was simultaneously released

The FAT for the LNG Transfer System supplied to Coralius was performed with success and included two PERC's, Dry Cryonic Couplings, ESD 1 & 2, PERC activation and monitoring unit and LNG bunker hoses.

On this project, MannTek worked closely with Sirius Shipping, the Anthony Veder Group and Skangas, the vessel’s charter company, on the installation of the system.

Markus said: “During the project we have made design suggestions that we felt would improve the way the system is fitted to the vessel. We were involved from a very early stage in design as bunking activities on a vessel need to be able to take place at four different locations.”

The Coralius started operations in the Baltic Sea and the North Sea in September.

MannTek LNG Transfer System delivered to the Tornio Manga LNG Terminal


MannTek has delivered another LNG Transfer System, this time to Wärtsilä and the Tornio Manga LNG Terminal. Wärtsilä is a recognised leader in gas engine technology and has, just like Skangas did at the Pori terminal, chosen MannTek LNG Transfer Systems for bunkering and delivering LNG.

A Factory Acceptance Test (FAT) has been successfully completed. The system consists of Manntek’s DCC (Dry Cryogenic Couplings), CBC (Cryogenic break-away Couplings), LNG bunkering hoses, an ESD (Emergency Shut Down which provides an ESD signal to ship or shore ESD system) and HPN2 (High Pressure Nitrogen System).

MannTek LNG Transfer Systems are lighter, by up to 50%, than any other LNG transfer system available today. This weight-saving is vital to owners and operators of the system as it makes it easier and safer for operators who have to manually lift the connections. MannTek’s CEO Markus Bäckström said: “The lighter design makes for a more maneuverable design which in turn makes the role of the system’s operators easier, and more importantly, safer.”

The Tornio Manga LNG Terminal is scheduled to be operational in the beginning of 2018 and will provide LNG for a new generation of LNG powered ships. It will be the largest imprt terminal for LNG in the entire Nordic region.

Another ship to ship LNG transfer system ready


MannTek has supplied LNG transfer equipment to many LNG transfer facilities around the world and on the 27th of June another ship to ship transfer system was ready for Factory Acceptance Test (FAT). The FAT was successfully completed at our facilities with both customers and  third party inspection (BV) present.

The system that will be delivered to Skangas is designed with two hose lines, 6” for liquid service and 4” for vapor service and consist of:

 

-DCC, Dry Cryogenic Couplings

-Powered Emergency Release Couplings (PERC)

-High Pressure Nitrogen Power and control Unit (HPN2),

-Composite hoses

-Wire drift off system with ESD 1&2.
