LNG: Natural Gas liquefaction

SMALL-SCALE LIQUEFACTION

SILICA and ADDsynergy: Modular LNG plants

Turnkey plants for natural gas liquefaction: In cooperation with the Spanish company ADDsynergy, SILICA designs and builds modular small-scale liquefaction plants for natural gas with a capacity between 6t and 400t of liquefied natural gas (LNG) per day.

LNG: Energy carrier of the future

At a temperature of -162°C, natural gas changes to a liquid aggregate state, reducing its volume by a factor of 600.
This makes it possible to transport natural gas over long distances and use it as an energy source in places where there are no pipelines or where it would be too complex and costly to build them. In remote areas, for example, existing coal- and diesel-fired power plants can be replaced by natural gas, which is a more environmentally friendly energy source for the production of electricity and heat.

LNG: Fuel of the future

In addition to the production of thermal energy or electricity, liquefied natural gas can also be used as an excellent fuel. Compared with diesel engines, gas engines are characterised by significantly lower emissions of carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxides and sulfur oxides, especially in heavy-duty transport, inland shipping and deep-sea navigation. Furthermore, the noise emissions of gas engines are also considerably lower and the exhaust gas is completely free of soot particles. The liquefaction of biomethane even produces a nearly CO2-neutral fuel.

SILICA AND ADD:
SUCCESSFUL PARTNERSHIP OF TWO SPECIALISTS

The Spanish company ADDsynergy designs and supplies the equipment for natural gas liquefaction as well as for storage and filling of the liquefied natural gas. SILICA focuses on natural gas purification, which takes place before liquefaction. Together we design and build turnkey natural gas liquefaction plants with capacities ranging from 6 to 400 tons of liquefied natural gas per day.

The plants follow a consistently modular design concept: All components are combined in compact skids that are completely pre-assembled before delivery. The modular design and the high degree of prefabrication significantly reduce the assembly time of the plants.

LNG: Cost-effective over long distances

Via a so-called virtual pipeline, the liquefied natural gas can be transported cost-effectively over long distances by ship, tanker truck or rail. At its destination, the liquefied gas is vaporised and then used as a gaseous energy carrier to generate thermal energy or to produce electricity.
