Babcock wins Vent Gas Cooler technology contract

Babcock LGE, the specialist technology provider for the marine liquefied gas market has secured a new contract for its patented Vent Gas Cooler (VGC™) technology.

This follows the recent award for its ground-breaking ecoSMRT® LNG reliquefaction technology for four newly ordered LNG carriers being built in South Korea.

Utilising innovative, multi-functional enhancements, the VGC™ will be utilised on two 79,500cbm LPG carriers. 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. Babcock’s VGC™ provides significant advantages over conventional options, giving increased efficiency at lower capital and operating cost. Babcock’s VGC™ offers a truly value added solution.

Neale Campbell, Babcock Systems Director said:

"Technology drives Babcock LGE’s success and promotes our innovative capability. The recent Vent Gas Cooler and ecoSMRT® contract awards demonstrate our ongoing, proven experience and are testament to the hard work and dedication of our international team."

As Babcock enters a new era of innovation, its patented solutions and bespoke client applications including VGC™ and ecoSMRT® technologies look set to thrive within the growing LNG sector.
