Our new and innovative features have made the LNGPacTM to a simple plug and play solution. The LNGPacTM includes the following benefits:
In the new LNGPac the Airlock is integrated into the tank connection space. This reduces the floor space requirement, increases safety, and makes the installation for the yard much easier.
Integrated Control Cabinet
The control cabinet has also been integrated into the tank connection space. This innovation results in a dramatic reduction of interfaces, since the amount of electrical cabling from the tank connection space to the external switchboards can be significantly reduced.
Integrated Gas Valve Unit (GVU)
The functional components of the GVU can be to be installed inside the tank connection space. By combining the LNGPac and the GVU into a single, fully integrated system, considerable space can be saved and a simple ‘plug & play’ solution will save installation time and costs for the yard.
Removal of the heating media skid and pumps
The heating media skid is replaced by an intermediate heating media circuit in the tank connection space. The new circuit requires no pumps and is able to directly utilize the engines’ cooling water. Fewer interfaces are needed and less installation work is, therefore, required. By using fewer less electrical consumers, Wärtsilä is enabling ships to be even more environmentally friendly.
Cold recovery solution
Wärtsilä’s cold recovery solution enables the ‘cold energy’ of the LNG to be utilised by the ship’s heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system. In the new cold recovery system the vessel’s HVAC, or other refrigeration systems is directly connected to the tank connection space. In so doing, a complete circuit consisting of heat exchangers, valves, and pumps can be eliminated.
