The project was part of the larger Blue INNOship project that focuses on the development of green and energy-efficient solutions for the Danish maritime sector. Our technical experts teamed up with researchers from DTU Mechanical Engineering to develop new, more efficient methods for the cooling of natural gas.
A fruitful collaboration
In order to turn natural gas into a liquid, it has to be cooled to approx. minus 162°C (minus 260°F) which can take considerable energy. Through a meticulous design process, with extensive calculations and testing, we managed to produce a solution that can liquefy natural gas using 40% less power than the European target.
The solution has many added bonuses: it can be built locally, takes up significantly less space than normal, is cheap to build and operate and has a modular design that scales with production demands.
