Composite Cryogenic Hose
 
A breakthrough in marine LNG production, containment and transfer.  Innovative solutions to drive the capture of natural resources from unprecedented marine locations and environments.
 
We proudly present the Composite Cryogenic Hose. A world first, the Composite Cryogenic Hose is a pioneering and technological breakthrough in marine LNG production, containment and transfer.

 

The Composite Cryogenic Hose is the first large bore composite hose truly suitable for LNG transfer in marine environments. The key characteristics of the Composite Cryogenic Hoses are its excellent and unprecedented performance on tensile load capacity, pressure capability and flexibility. This has been achieved through extensive research and development, and the unique application of new techniques, materials and components to existing and established composite hose technology.

 
Lloyd's type-approved for offshore marine applications

All compsite Cryogenic Hose components have been extensively and rigorously tested, both individually and in assembly. The Composite Cryogenic Hose is Lloyd's type-approved for offshore marine applications and is presently available in 8 inch and 16 inch diameters, with a maximum hose length of 25 m. Soo, the hose range will be extended to diameters in excess of 20 inch and lengths beyond the current 25 m maximum.

Patended hose construction and newly designed end-fitting.

The Compsite Cryogenic Hose is the result of an extensive, 10-year research and development programme funded by the patent holder and performed in collaboration with BPP-Tech and Dantec. The mfg's is taking next step, enabling the application of the patended Composite Cryogenic Hose, including its newly designed end-fitting, for service in marine LNG production, containment and transfer.

Traditionally, composite hoses were unsuitable for use in marine LNG production, containment and transfer applications due to their low axial strength and limited dynamic loading capability at the end-fitting. The Compoiste Cryogenic Hose has overcome these limitations with its improved axial strength (elongation of the hose is comparable with steel) and its excellent flexibility, both critical rquirements for marine envrionment dynamic operations.

Twice the pressure capacity of a conventional composite hose

The unique design of the new end-fitting provides far greater endurance, improved flexibility and enhanced integrity under dynamic loading conditions.

With excellent pressure capabilities set to extend even further, the Composite Cryogenic Hose already has a certified allowable working pressure of 20 barg (safety factor five) - twice the pressure of a convention composite hose and unprecedented for application in marine LNG production, containment and transfer. It is anticipated that even higher pressure capacity will be certified as part of the continued development programme.

The Composite Cryogenic Hose is further testament to innovation and technological advancement. For the first time ever, the proven single point mooring transfer technologies commonly used in the offshore oil and gas industry can now be applied in marine LNG production, containment and transfer. Quite simply, the Composite Cryogenic Hose will be revolutionise marine LNG production, and lead industry into a new frontier of exciting and rewarding opportunities.
