Best solutions for heavy users of energy to convert fuel to natural gas
Packaged-type LNG satellite equipment achieves high reliability, low cost, and short term delivery


Standardized compact LNG satellite systems

  • 30% cost down has been achieved compared with conventional systems.
  • As a result of the reduction of the delivery period of component units and of the construction work period, the minimum delivery period for the facilities is nine months.
    Shortening the component delivery and construction work periods makes a minimum delivery period of nine months possible.
  • A wide variety of options are available according to client needs.
