Small-Scale LNG Collaboration Announced

By Jack Burke19 December 2019

In collaboration with Cryotec Anlagenbau GmbH, the Bilfinger subsidiary Bilfinger EMS has developed a concept for processing small gas volumes into liquefied natural gas (LNG).

This includes treating gas derived from various sources, supplying the corresponding

liquefaction technology, and providing LNG for further use in Europe.

“As part of this partnership, we will be able to provide all the required services throughout the entire lifecycle from under one roof – from the LNG facilities’ planning all the way to their installation,” said Karsten Hoffhaus, managing director of Bilfinger EMS. “This will give a sustained boost to our position on the market.”

LNG frequently is in demand at locations that are far from a major import terminal. Accordingly, facilities that are able to produce the fuel locally in smaller quantities and to deliver it where it is needed will play an ever more important role in the future.

This is because small, modular liquefaction facilities enable a reliable and uninterrupted supply chain, from the gas source straight to the end consumer, the company said.

“We are looking forward to working together with Bilfinger EMS,” said Corinne Ziege, managing director of Cryotec Anlagenbau. Our combined expertise will allow us to offer customers an end-to-end solution for small-scale LNG facilities, customized to their requirements and made in Germany.”

Cryotec specializes in cryogenic air-fractionation and liquefaction facilities, for which it provides its own in-house engineering and fabrication services.

Bilfinger delivers its services in two lines: technologies and engineering and Maintenance. Bilfinger is primarily active in continental Europe, Northwest Europe, North America and the Middle East. Process industry customers come from sectors that include chemicals & petrochemicals, energy & utilities, oil & gas, pharma & biopharma, metallurgy and cement.
