Typical cryogenic test underway at the new KLAW LNG testing facility.

KLAW LNG, a leader in the design, manufacture and application of ship-to-ship and bunkering LNG transfer systems and part of the Signum Technology family, has expanded its manufacturing and test facilities at the Great Yarmouth Technology Centre.

According to Signum Technology, it is committed to ensuring KLAW LNG continues to be the industry leader in LNG hose transfer systems and the additional investment has been made to keep up with customer demand. The investment is spread across various parts of the Great Yarmouth facility from manufacturing and assembly to systems testing. This includes:

Horizontal CNC Lathe > Hi-TECH 850 provides a reliable precision production resource for the manufacture of KLAW LNG 8” and 10” Cryogenic High Flow Emergency Release Couplings.

LNG ERC assembly clean room and low temperature testing > A dedicated clean assembly room has been created to fully assemble and test Cryogenic ERCs. Each valve has an ambient gas seat test and shell test followed by a low temp shell and seat test at -140 degrees C.

System FAT area > Additional workshop space is being developed in Great Yarmouth currently to allow expansion of the KLAW LNG offering and accommodate full acceptance testing.

Additional project and application engineers are also being added to the KLAW LNG design team at the Westbury UK Technology Centre.
