Norway, first floating LNG transshipment
DirectLink project of Gas Natural Fenosa and Connect LNG
A floating platform that can be connected to any type of LNG carrier allowing for an onshore transfer of LNG via cryogenic, also floating, pipes in a safe and efficient manner. This is the DirectLink LNG system, which Spanish group Gas Natural Fenosa and a specialized Norwich company Connect LNG successfully tested offshore Herøya, Norway, last week.
DirectLink LNG, underlines a message, represents an absolute innovation both for the connector between the LNG carrier and the platform and the floating pipes.
DirectLink LNG, created at the Norwich shipyard of Brevik in only 6 months, allows for unloading LNG onshore without fixed port infrastructure, providing financial savings and reducing environmental impact.
