The growth in LNG bunkering has led to the introduction of several new standards. Here our LNG Solutions’ Business Development Manager, Nigel Edwards explains that systems must be designed and manufactured to be fit for purpose, but also need to be futureproof.
"We have to make sure that we manufacture flexibility to improve, upgrade and change the design of systems," he said.
For example; a new standard for dry cryogenic couplings, ISO 21593, has been released that covers the design, minimum safety, functional and marking requirements of the equipment. The standard aims to ensure all manufacturers meet the same rigorous requirements leading to a more efficient, compatible and interchangeable market. Such uniformity and flexibility would facilitate LNG bunkering operations on a more global basis.
MannTek is one of the few suppliers that can offer complete solutions which fulfil these standards.
