As the importance of the LNG business continues to grow for the gases community, Taylor-Wharton Cryogenics LLC and The HAM Group have embarked upon a strategic partnership in North America.

The venture will see the two companies work together to provide equipment, installation, construction and services for North American LNG projects.

Sales and engineering teams for upcoming projects will be provided by Taylor-Wharton CryoLNG, while The HAM Group installation and service personnel will provide permitting, construction, installation and services for projects featuring Taylor-Wharton LNG equipment.

Particular emphasis will be placed on the emerging High Horse Power (HHP) markets for marine, rail, industrial, E&P, LNG bunkering and mining uses of LNG.

The agreement combines North American-based Taylor-Wharton, a leading worldwide LNG equipment manufacturer, with HAM Group, which has provided construction, installation and service for more than 300 LNG installations in Spain, Europe, the Caribbean and South America, including LNG vaporization stations – a series of LNG fueling stations for heavy duty trucks and tank installations at larger LNG installations.
