Cryogenic liquids such as LNG are stored at extremely low temperatures, and under very high pressures. Ambient heat from the ship’s environment, combined with the high pressure, causes small amounts of the liquid to be boiled off and vented during the transportation and storage process.
Eniram’s tool uses on board data to measure actual boil-off of LNG, enabling officers on board and onshore to understand and monitor it, and act accordingly to minimise the loss.
“We are delighted to be able to help our LNG customers further with our latest addition to the Eniram LNG portfolio,” said director of LNG & Tankers at Eniram, Nick Pinkney.
“We have worked hard to build a strong portfolio of products to help our LNG customers. The addition of Boil-Off Management is a natural evolution as a key component in helping our LNG customers to operate as efficiently as possible.”
