Ulsan-based shipbuilding company Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) Thursday says it has achieved a breakthrough within the liquefied natural gas (LNG) sphere by being the first in the world to develop technology for fully re-liquefying 100% of the evaporative gas generated from LNG carriers.
“By successfully demonstrating fully advanced liquefaction technology that is one step further than partial re-liquefaction, we are able to increase technological competitiveness in the LNG market, which is increasingly in demand,” said HHI officials.
“In addition to large LNG carriers, we will continue to lead the future LNG carrier market by expanding into small-size LNG carriers.”
The development was carried out at the Ulsan Head Office's LNG mixed refrigerant single-mixed refrigerant (SMR) system demonstration facility.
The technology, co-developed with UK gas processing engineering company LGE (Liquid Gas Equipment), can also be transferred to LNG bunkering vessels and small LNG carriers, it states.
