Kingspan Insulation and LOGSTOR are excited to be attending the GasTech Expo together in Milan 5-8th September 2022. Representatives will be present from Kingspan Insulation businesses in Asia Pacific (Chris Johnston), North America (Vincent Fuster), Central Europe (Roel Vleminckx) and South Europe (Xavier Grabuleda, Josep Maria Castañer, Jose Bueno), as well as LOGSTOR.

Celebrating its 50th anniversary in Milan, Gastech will gather Ministers, CEOs, policymakers, business leaders, engineers, innovators and disruptors. As the global energy landscape undertakes a rapid transformation, being present at Gastech 2022 will be critical in securing the position of Kingspan in the new energy future.

Taking stock of the evolving energy landscape, Kingspan want to be part of the solution to the energy crisis with gas circularity and are excited to be able to complete this with LOGSTOR.

Essentially, the LNG value chain can be divided into four main steps; natural gas production and exploration, liquefaction and storage, shipping, and finally, receiving, regasification and distribution. For LOGSTOR, NG production sometimes utilises insulated pipelines to control temperature and therefore pressure. Historically we were involved in the shipping part of the process when we supplied insulation to the vessels transporting LNG.

Kingspan Insulation’s main focus now is the receiving to regasification part of the market.

The majority of berths or docks for LNG carriers need to be a certain distance from the shore to maintain the required water depth for the vessel. Then there is a distance of open ground until the battery limits of the regasification unit. LOGSTOR’s CryoPipe is the pre-insulated solution and Kingspan’s Tarecpir is the post-installation solution for insulating this pipeline from vessel to regasification unit.

This could be several meters to multiple km’s and usually of large diameter pipe.

The benefit of pre-insulated pipe is that the installation process is faster, utilising less manpower on site. A post-insulated solution is more cost effective and offers more flexibility for the installation contractor. Careful consideration of the client’s requirements enables Kingspan to develop the optimal solution.

Ideally timed two months ahead of COP-27, the four-day exhibition and conference will provide a forum for Kingspan Insulation and LOGSTOR to showcase to a global audience their solutions to the challenges faced on the journey to net-zero.
