KAEFER holds a worldwide leading position as an integrated services and solution provider, specialising in Insulation, Access, Surface Protection, Passive Fire Protection, as well as Interior Outfitting. With an annual turnover of around €1.5 billion, KAEFER’s business is carried out in its Industry, Marine & Offshore and Construction divisions. Headquartered in Bremen, in the north of Germany, the company has operations in over 40 countries, a current workforce of 28,000.

We have two specialised divisions dedicated to LNG – our Corporate Competence Centre Liquefied Gases (CCCL) and the LNG Solutions Centre. Both are staffed with experts who are specialists in adapting to challenging scenarios and bespoke applications where mechanical and thermal tensions are high.

The KAEFER LNG Solutions Centre focuses on delivering sophisticated and intelligent solutions and services to major LNG projects. For example, we have developed a pre-insulation process for pipes, which is modular and flexible, allowing pipes to be insulated efficiently before they are installed on site. This means they are not subject to environmental variables and the process saves time and money by ensuring high quality and lower levels of manpower and scaffolding.

Our CCCL focuses on gas carriers and high-level engineering, research and process development. Our joint venture with the Broadway Group in Shanghai is combining the know-how in insulation solutions of CCCL and the local market strength of Broadway to focus mainly on China. All products are manufactured locally to make the most of the opportunities in this growing industry.

Both units together cover the entire LNG operations chain from exploration to the receiving party:

  • Liquefaction
  • Storage
  • Loading & Unloading
  • Shipping
  • Regasification
