New product doubles LNG bunkering efficiency


The LNG division of Kosan Crisplant a/s, KC LNG, has finished its new product: the KC LNG Y-piece for LNG marine bunkering.

By allowing the attachment of two tank trailers simultaneously, this innovative solution makes it possible to refuel a ship with LNG at twice the capacity in the same time as normal truck-to-ship bunkering. KC LNG hopes that this new product will help to make the adaptation of LNG, the cleanest fossil fuel available, feasible for more companies.

The Y-piece is designed to work as an adapter that splits a ship’s fuel connection into two, in order to transfer fuel from double the amount of tank trailers.
