Nikkiso Cryo Inc. (NCI), a member of Nikkiso Clean Energy and Industrial Gases Group, a part of Nikkiso Co. Ltd (Japan), has announced the launch of its new facility, which increases its cryogenic pump production efficiency and capability.
In a press release, NCI said that its new, larger facility was necessary due to continued growth and demand for the cryogenic pump products and services that it provides to the global LNG market (primarily for LNG export and import terminals).
The 15 000 ft2 office facility is adjacent to the company’s primary production test site, which includes several significant enhancements to operational efficiency, safety, and increased production capabilities. Among them is a new ground-level flare system, which offers greater efficiency and manufacturing capacity. A Class 1 Division 1 electric overhead crane was installed on the test pad. This reduces costs, increases productivity by allowing multiple operations to occur simultaneously, improves safety by allowing multi-pump lifting and installation for testing, and is certified for hazardous-rated areas.
Daryl Lamy, President of Nikkiso Cryo Inc., said: “This is an exciting next step for our company and a significant benefit for our customers. NCI will now be able to increase production and reduce turnaround time.”
NCI also said that these enhancements will provide benefits for customer remote-site witness testing at the facility. This feature offers significant value and time savings for global customers, particularly beneficial due to COVID-19 travel concerns.
