By Richard Hepworth, President of Trelleborg’s marine systems operation
Trelleborg’s marine systems operation will deliver the welcoming address at The LNG World Shipping Ship/Shore Interface Conference, which will be held at the Millennium Gloucester Hotel & Conference Centre in London, England, 11-12 May 2016.
Organized by LNG World Shipping, The LNG Ship/Shore Interface Conference provides invaluable best practice insight to all stakeholders in the LNG transportation supply chain. This includes key technology challenges in the LNG transportation sector, such as the ship/shore interface, the growing offshore LNG sector and offshore transfer.
Delivered by Dave Pendleton, Managing Director of Trelleborg’s marine systems operation UK, the welcoming address will discuss the importance of the ship shore interface to LNG transfer. At the conference, Andrew Stafford, Technical Director of Trelleborg’s marine systems operation UK, will also take to the stage to provide an overview of the Ship-Shore Link (SSL) technology that has set the industry standard in large-scale LNG transfer for nearly 20 years. He will also discuss the current compatibility issues in the industry and lessons learned across ship-to-ship transfer, LNGCs and small scale LNG.
With an increasing LNG capacity on stream year-on-year we’re seeing rising demand not only for large scale transportation of cargo, but for more FSRU applications and the growth of LNG fueling for marine vessels. Each of these applications have one key requirement in common: the safe, efficient and timely transfer of LNG from one tank system to another. A critical element in achieving this is the ship shore interface.
The safe, efficient transportation and transfer of LNG as a cargo has had an enviable track record over its 40 year history. The LNG Ship/Shore Interface Conference provides the ideal platform to discuss our commitment to maintaining this record by helping ports, terminals and vessels take a smarter approach to interfaces between units in LNG transfer, which can have a huge impact on overall efficiency.
