BW Regas project equipped by PG

Wärtsilä return with orders for another massive plate heatexchanger-delivery from PG, this time for their BW Gas Regas project.

PG Flow Solutions provides the heatexchangers as a sub-supplier to Wärtsila Norway, who delivers a regasification module to the operator BW Gas Regas . A vessel this size requires three heatexchangers and a total of 2,520 titanium plates of 8.0 m2 each, with a height of 3,4 metres, to process the natural gas into a liquefied state. The giant plates are manufactured by Sondex, at the company’s premises in Kolding, Denmark. PG Flow Solutions is Sondex’s official business partner in Norway.

The heatexchangers will become part of a cascade system, where light natural gas is heated by propane as medium in a closed loop.  “The cascade concept is recommended instead of direct heat exchanging with seawater. Liquefied natural gas heat exchanged directly with seawater increases the risk of freezing the seawater in the heatexchanger. Propane as a secondary medium is suggested because of its thermodynamic properties with a low freezing point. This process and the heat exchangers by Sondex is selected to liquefy the cargo,” says Øyvind Berg, vice president sales & marketing at PG Flow Solutions.
The S310 range from Sondex is a new generation of high–capacity plate heatexchangers especially designed for large installations within the power, oil & gas, petrochemical and desalination industries and for installations where extended quantities of cooling water are required.

PG Flow Solutions provides proprietary solutions, systems and products for companies within the aquaculture, maritime, energy, and land-based process industries. The heritage of the business is pumps and pumping systems. Its headquarter is based at Hvalstad, Asker, Norway, with main manufacturing sites located in Sande, Vestfold, Norway, and Worcester, UK. The company also has a fabrication site in Al Khobar, Saudi Arabia, and a service set-up in Ningbo, China.
