The HiLoad technology has been developed through a comprehensive development and qualification process over the last 15 years, including 7 model tests and extensive research activities. With full trading flexibility and a high utilization of the LNGCs, thereby keeping the shipping costs at a minimum, the technology solves one of the major FLNG-related challenges.
The combination of a robust, both technical- and economical, LNG offloading solution has been an industry challenge. The dynamically positioned HiLoad LNG provides a solution for safe and efficient LNG offloading with use of conventional LNGCs without modification, maintaining the interest of the above mentioned parameters. Flexibility, cost, efficiency and limited operational restrictions have been key focus areas throughout the development process.
The technology is based on well-known proven technology being used by the industry for decades and introduces innovative solutions being technology-proven through extensive testing and qualification processes.
The HiLoad LNG is equally suited for offloading from “ship shaped” -as well as “cylindrical shaped” FLNGs.
