LNG Tank Cranes & Hoists
LNG Tank Cranes & HoistsA liquefied natural gas storage tank or LNG storagetank is a specialized type of storage tank used for thestorage of Liquefied Natural Gas.LNG storage tanks can be found in ground, aboveground or in LNG carriers.The common characteristic of LNG Storage tanks isthe ability to store LNG at the very low temperatureof -162 C (-260 F). LNG storage tanks have doublecontainers, where the inner contains LNG and theouter container contains insulation materials.Natural gas is composed primarily of methane (typically,at least 90%). Volume of this liquid takes up about11/600th the volume of natural gas at a stove burnertip. LNG weighs less than one-half that of water. LNGis odourless, colourless, non-corrosive, and non-toxic.The most common tank type is the full containmenttank. Tanks vary greatly in size, depending on usage.World is looking for cleaner fuel for cleaner environmentand LNG is the solution and fastest growing source ofenergy.The major LNG (liquefied natural gas) exportingcountries are Russia, Canada, Norway, Algeria, Qatar,Indonesia, USA, Malasia, Nigeria, Australia, Egypt andOman and major importing countries are Japan, SouthKorea, USA and a few European countries. Expert’sopinion is that world’s liquefaction capacity willincrease fivefold by 2030.Eilbeck Cranes, an expert in Explosion ProtectedCranes and Hoists takes consideration of sensitivity ofLNG gas and using its vast experience and capableof designing the suitable hoists and cranes for LNGTank application. Eilbeck Cranes is being worldwideacceptable by world most prestigious engineeringcompanies like Shell, Total, BP, Statoil, INPEX,PETRONAS, Qatar Petroleum Woodside, Technip,Bechtel, JGC, Chiyoda , Flour, Saipem, Akersolution.2
