TRELLEBORG TO SHOWCASE COMPREHENSIVE LNG OFFERING AT GASTECH 2019
Trelleborg will showcase its portfolio of industry leading LNG transfer technology at this year’s Gastech in Texas (17 – 19 September). Additionally, as part of Gastech’s main conference program, Technical Director at Trelleborg’s marine and infrastructure operation, Andrew Stafford, will discuss the various technology solutions currently available for radio ESD and communications links (16:30 – 17:00, 17 September, T1.2 Wireless Linked ESD Considerations). The presentation will give careful consideration to the functionality offered by each solution, as well as the benefits and issues in providing the safe, reliable and timely activation of a linked ESD system. James Hermary, Product Manager – LNG Applications, of Trelleborg Fluid Handling Solutions, will also present the results of a successful field operation of an integrated monitoring system for cryogenic hoses, along with its multiple applications in maintaining and improving safety standards in ship-to-ship and ship-to-shore LNG transfers (10:15-10:45, 18 September, T1.3 Shipping). Trelleborg’s oil and marine operation will be showcasing fluid handling solutions that are underpinning some of the most significant trends in the offshore oil and gas markets. Its experts will be on hand to discuss Trelleborg’s Cryoline floating LNG hoses which are unlocking new possibilities in small to medium-scale transfer and LNG bunkering. At the same time, they will demonstrate how a selection of seawater intake risers can impact a project. SWILINE seawater intake risers feature unique diverless installation functionality and optimize placement of hypochlorite injection to maximize performance and service life. Field-proven, SWILINE solutions have been used on two global FLNG projects, including Shell Prelude, the world’s largest FLNG in the Timor sea, with production beginning last year. On stand, representatives from Trelleborg’s marine and infrastructure operation will be discussing SmartPort, a technology platform that connects port operations, allowing operators to analyze asset performance and use data to improve decision making at every LNG transfer touchpoint. The system integrates assets like fenders, mooring equipment, ship performance monitoring, and navigation systems through a network of sensors. Additionally, the stand will showcase a number of Trelleborg’s SmartPort enabled products. This will include AutoMoor, its rope-free automated mooring system for smarter, safer and more efficient berthing operations, as well as DynaMoor, a safety focused dynamic mooring solution that actively maintains constant tension in mooring lines to dampen vessel movements, eliminating the effect that passing ships and long-period waves have on moored vessels.
