Back in 2015, MAKEEN Cryo delivered the bunkering solution that enables the Samsoe ferry to connect the island of Samsoe to the Danish mainland – while running on an environmentally friendly fuel. And even though everything worked fine, the shipowner decided to upgrade the facility.
Redesign improves ergonomics
The original bunkering facility, delivered by MAKEEN Cryo, worked completely according to plan. But the shipowner realised that it could be even better than it already was.
By partnering up with MAKEEN Cryo once again, they were able to implement a few, minor changes that made a positive difference on a daily basis. Let us give you a couple of examples.
Firstly, MAKEEN Cryo installed a number of displays that present information from the bunkering system. In that way, they make it easy for the operator to get exactly the information they want.
Secondly, MAKEEN Cryo redesigned the area around the LNG hose. We adjusted the landing bridge and moved the parking space for the hose. As a result, we optimised the area and maximised ergonomics – all for the benefit of the operators.
