February 20, 2023 [OffshoreEnergy] – Amid growing European demand for LNG imports from the US, Svanehøj France, a unit of Danish marine pump manufacturer Svanehøj, has provided a tank gauging system for two LNG tanks at Venture Global’s Calcasieu Pass LNG terminal.
Calcasieu Pass LNG is a large LNG export facility in Louisiana developed by Venture Global. The facility started operations in early 2022 and it has the capacity to export 10 million tonnes per year (mtpa) of LNG.
LNG export between the US and Europe has increased significantly following the Russian invasion of Ukraine. It is reported that, in June 2022 alone, the US transported more LNG to European countries than in all of 2021.
Venture Global’s Calcasieu Pass LNG Terminal is said to be one of those facilities contributing to the increase in LNG exports from the US.
With this in mind, Svanehøj France has been chosen by CB&I, a Houston-based designer and builder of storage facilities, tanks and terminals, to provide safety instrumentation and software solution for the project, the company explained.
Svanehøj’s instrumentation and software solutions are installed to ensure that all hazardous aspects related to liquified gas storage are known and controllable. The systems proactively measure possible development or creation of stratification by monitoring the tanks.
“Our ambition is to be the prime provider of instrumentation and software systems for liquified gas storage, and we are happy to apply our solutions at the Calcasieu Pass LNG terminal. We have the professional expertise to provide the optimal monitoring data and help the terminal make the right decisions”, said David Clercq, Head of Sales at Svanehøj France.
Svanehøj France is an independent business for the production, sales and service of land-based LNG tank gauging systems and hydraulic LPG safety valve systems.
It was established in 2022 following Svanehøj’s acquisition of Wärtsilä Tank Control Systems (TCS) business, which was announced in September 2021.
