Undisclosed global energy company selected ECONNECT Energy to join this LNG project due to its leadership in jettyless marine transfer.

Specifically, the said LNG jettyless transfer technology features a modular fast-track infrastructure solution for offshore applications.

It leverages the traditional marine infrastructure and existing LNG transfer operations. Thus, it is optimised to be scalable as well as compatible with a wide range of FSUs and FSRUs.

ECONNECT Energy’s patented transfer system, the IQuay C-Class, made history with the world’s first jettyless, floating transfer of LNG in 2017. A variety of applications have since adapted it.

Moreover, the IQuay F-Class offering is suitable for permanent or semi-permanent installations, whereby LNG can go between supply and storage facility. The F-class can connect to any FSU or FSRU, and can operate in extreme metocean conditions.

The IQuay F-Class connects vessels to offshore production terminals, floating storage units. It can also be combined with the jettyless IQuay C-Class. This way it provides separation between the floating terminal and the visiting LNG carrier.
