Finnish liquefied natural gas tank manufacturer LNGTainer has launched a new tank. The tank is ready for production, which will take place in Finland, according to LNGTainer.

The company claims that its new gas containers have 15% more volume and utilize 30% less equipment by weight compared to normal gas shipping containers.

The containers also use less insulation for maintaining internal temperature and need less energy to prepare the liquid gas for use, LNGTainer says.

The patented technology developed by LNGTainer gives their gas tanks a 60-day holding time. This allows them to be transported to parts of the world that are traditionally difficult to access.

“The most revolutionary aspect of the new tank container, and what gives a basis for the advanced design, is the fact that the insulation has been moved from the outside of the cryogenic tanks to the inside,” said Chief Executive Tom Sommardal. “ The containers are designed as 40′ ISO containers stackable as per international rules and regulations, and can be flexibly arranged for storage purposes at power plants when used for feeding gas turbines or engines,” he said.

LNGTainer has received a total of 3 million euros in funding from sources including private investors such as Nordic venture fund Innovestor and Finnish funding agency for innovation Tekes.
