Alfa Laval plays a key role in the move towards LNG propulsion. Alfa Laval technologies and expertise especially in the area of boilers are enabling marine vessels to deal with boil-off gas (BOG), which is the critical step in making the shift to LNG. Alfa Lavals dual-fuel boilers, Gas Combustion Unit (GCU) and services form a complete portfolio of solutions for BOG safety.
In order to use LNG as fuel, vessels must be able to manage boil-off gas (BOG), the evaporated gas that can increase tank pressure. Alfa Laval is well known for BOG management on LNG carriers, where the Alfa Laval Gas Combustion Unit (GCU) safely burns BOG in compliance with the International Code for Gas as Cargo (IGC). When it comes to using LNG for propulsion under the International code for Gas as Fuel (IGF), Alfa Laval is also managing BOG with dual-fuel Alfa Laval Aalborg boilers and is tipping the balance in LNGs favor for a far larger number of vessels.
As a full-scope marine supplier, Alfa Laval provides not only in-house engineering and manufacturing, but also peace of mind through commissioning and a well-established global service network.
