Argent Marine’s Patented System for Transport of LNG filled ISO Containers by Marine Vessel Begins Commercial Operations
New Fortress Energy has recently announced the start of commercial operations of a vessel transporting LNG in specially designed ISO containers. The vessel has been equipped with NFE's ISOFLEX system using a proprietary manifold and LNG cargo containment system under license to New Fortress by Argent Marine Management under Argent’s patents in the United States, Canada and Mexico. The manifold and cargo control system facilitates transloading LNG from a floating LNG terminal into multiple ISO containers on board the vessel. The filled ISO containers can then be offloaded at container ports and onto trucks
Argent Marine Rolls Out Bunker Solutions for Alternate Fuels
Argent Marine Management, Inc. unveiled a new LNG bunker vessel design, compliant with applicable IGC Code provisions and capable of both bunkering LNG fuel as well as being modified to bunker alternate liquid fuels for marine use including ammonia, methanol and liquified hydrogen, in both inland and ocean ports. This ability to bunker LNG initially and be modified for other liquid fuels minimizes the risk of investment as marine fuel options evolve and change based on technical and economic developments. Notably, once an IBV is located in a port with container handling equipment, the needed commercial infrastructure is in place to facilitate bunkering liquid marine fuel from LNG to liquified hydrogen.
