Industry Database

Babcock International has secured six new contracts for its smart technology which rids the need for external pre-cooling during the LNG reliquefaction process.

The six new ecoSMRT contracts with Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) in South Korea leaves the order book totalling 11 contracts over the last six months and valuing £40m, a sure sign that the technology is making its mark in the industry.

“ecoSMRT is an innovative solution; we are well placed to support our customers as technology and environmental factors drive efficiencies and improvements across the market. Our recent success highlights that ecoSMRT is trusted to deliver energy and cost savings for our customers,” said Neale Campbell, managing director, Babcock LGE.

Improved efficiency

Designed to reliquefy at 1.9 tonne/hour using a single mixed refrigeration unit, Babcock’s ecoSMRT can result in significant environmental footprint reduction and lower maintenance with only one compressor required.

Mr Campbell said that ecoSMRT can provide customers energy savings for both newbuilds and retrofit programmes across the optimised cargo handling market.

Babcock delivers a range of solutions designed to support the growing liquefied gas market including ecoSMRT, Vent Gas Cooler (VGC) and SuperCooler.

The VGC provides increased reliquefaction plant capacity and the ability to carry cargoes with high incondensable or volatile content, which conventional reliquefaction systems could not handle.

SuperCooler and FGSCO technology aim to provide a zero-emissions solution for LNG supply vessels.
