Cryogenic equipment manufacturer INOXCVA has delivered two large storage capacity liquid nitrogen (N2) tanks to the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO).
INOXCVA designed and built the super insulated, 300m3 liquid N2 tanks, which feature ultra-high levels of thermal isolation in combination with high vacuum capacity.
The V30507AS type vessels are 25 metres tall, 5 metres in diameter and weigh in at around 127 tonnes. They also feature vacuum jacketed outer piping valve skids.
The tanks will be installed at ISRO’s Satish Dhawan Space Centre (SDSC) SHAR, Sriharikota, site, the area dedicated to providing the launch base infrastructure for the Indian Space Programme.
INXOCVA called the project “the first of its kind undertaken in India” and a “major milestone in the field of cryogenic insulation technology.”
SDSC SHAR has a separate launch pad for launching sounding rockets. The centre also provides the necessary launch base infrastructure for sounding ISRO’s rockets and for assembly, integration and launch of sounding rockets and payloads.
Cryogenic engineering and equipment manufacturer INOXCVA will be providing cryogenics technologies along with associated equipment and project management for the upcoming FLNG terminal of LNG BHARAT, within the breakwaters of the Krishnapatnam Port on the east coast of India.
INOXCVA has successfully delivered three 770m3 LNG marine fuel tanks to TGE Marine Gas Engineering (Bonn, Germany) for Crowley Maritime Corporation’s 2400 TEU ConRo ships project at the VT Halter Marine Shipyard in the US.
