- Pressure vessels, Heat Exchangers, Pumps, Compressors are designed according to same requirements and specifications as on standard FPSOs; e.g ASME VIII, TEMA, API 674, API 617.
- Most of the equipment will see the same operation conditions as on a standard FPSO.
- LNG FPSO equipment novelties:
- Braced Aluminium Heat Exchangers
: Proven on large LNG carriers
: Larger but within vendor experience range.
: Not operation sensitive to motion or liquid distribution
: Enclosed BAHX – no new material exposed to the marine environment
: Long experience for much more complex versions onshore
: Design according to ALPEMA standard
- Cryogenic Expanders
: Not new to the marine environment
: Proven on the large LNG carriers
: Well within proven design capacity
- Boil Off Gas Compressors
: Not new to the marine environment and LNG-tankers
