Storage and transportation of LNG and LPG

Our Wood Department also offers our customers products for temporary storage and transportation of liquefied natural gas (LNG) and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG). Primarily this means compressed laminated wood -insulation and support structure solutions used in temporary storage tanks and means of transport for LNG/LPG.

For example, LNG can be transported in special tanker ships over long journeys and stored at ports in large tanks. LNG remains liquefied if kept below -163 C and a sufficiently insulated tank is needed for transport and storage. European beech is almost as durable as metal, but also has excellent temperature fluctuation properties. It is used as a support and insulation material in LNG/LPG tanks, for example in LNG tanker ships, but also in the different smaller support structures of LNG and LPG tankers and pipes because of its unique thermal properties.
