Storage, assembly and packing of LNG Marine Loading Arms

Van der Vlist Terminal Moerdijk is currently providing a storage facility for a producer of LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) marine loading arms. The loading arms are used to load and unload a variety of liquid and compressed gas products from river barges, ships and ocean going super tankers.

The parts were transported by truck and barge to the terminal, Van der Vlist then discharged them into storage using the terminals mobile crane facility. Once unloaded, the client was then provided full access to 2600 m2 of indoor storage as well as a further 2500m2 outside storage area located partly under the portal crane, enabling their staff to work on site to assemble and pack the parts in preparation for export to the final destination, Australia.

On arrival in Australia, the loading arms will be put to use on one of the world’s largest natural gas projects. The project, located off of Western Australia, is the largest single resource natural gas project in Australia’s history. It includes the construction of a 15 million tonne per annum LNG plant as well as a domestic gas plant with the capacity to provide 300 terajoules per day to supply gas to Western Australia. The LNG will be off loaded via a four kilometre long loading jetty for onward transport to international markets. The domestic gas will be piped directly to the Western Australian mainland.

Throughout the project, which is expected to last approximately 6 months, Van der Vlist Terminal Moerdijk is providing technical staff and logistical support on a flexible basis.
