Composite secondary barrier for LNG application

Secondary barrier for membrane type LNG carrieres

Since 1991, TRIPLEX has been used as a Secondary Barrier for most GAZ TRANSPORT & TECHNIGAZ MKIII and CS1 LNG Carriers.  As of today, there are over 160 LNG carriers either in operation or being built with TRIPLEX. The TRIPLEX has been approved by all I.A.C.S classification societies experienced in LNG vessels. t HUTCHINSON is now introducing on the market a READY-TO-BOND TRIPLEX and associated Automatic Bonding Machine (ABM). This system greatly simplifies the Erection On Board (EOB) works while enhancing the quality control procedures and performance of the secondary barrier in service.
