Signum Technology company KLAW LNG, a manufacturer of ship-to-ship and ship-to-shore safety critical LNG transfer systems, has confirmed an innovative new element to its hose transfer system. The CryoCL sets new standards for speed of connection and increased safety.

The CryoCL can deliver up to 50 times faster connection times than the traditional nut and bolt method and is already proving to be effective in commercial operations at an LNG FSRU import facility at the Moheshkhali Floating LNG terminal, Bangladesh, commissioned in August 2018.

The fast connection advantages of the CryoCL is particularly valuable in the face of challenging weather conditions.

Operational efficiencies in time is also exponentially improved with multiple lines.

This new technology is also a great step forward in terms of safety. Faster connection and disconnection reduces exposure time for crew on deck, which can be particularly acute in extremely hot or cold environments. This simpler method of connection also means operators are less exposed to the risk of hand injuries.

“This is another example of Signum driving technology forward with new product development investment focussed on delivering solutions and real benefits to operators both in terms of efficiency and safety,” says Signum Technology Sales and Compliance Director Jeff Vile.

The CryoCL is part of the 10 in. LNG hose transfer system supplied by KLAW LNG for the Moheshkhali Floating LNG terminal. The critical safety transfer system is a crucial part of Bangladesh’s first LNG import facility.
