Norway’s Connect LNG in cooperation with Spain’s Gas Natural Fenosa launched the first full-scale and market-ready Universal Transfer System (UTS). 

During the launch, on October 7, Gas Natural Fenosa and Connect LNG carried out a complete operation including transfer of LNG from Skangas’ LNG carrier Coral Energy to the onshore LNG terminal at Herøya.

The UTS is a floating solution for LNG transfer between ship and shore that replaces the need for cost and environmental intensive harbor and jetty structures.

This solution allows for rapid expansion of the value chain and transfer of LNG at locations where it was previously not possible due to environmental and economic constraints, Connect LNG said.

The first full-scale UTS was hooked up to the terminal less than six months following the finalization of the detailed design, with the installation at the Herøya terminal taking one day following the delivery from the dockyard.
