LNG Storage

IDESA expands its range of services and products and has signed a collaboration agreement with Cryospain, a Spanish company leader in cryogenic engineering. Joint expertise and technical capabilities mean new vacuum insulated vessels for LNG and other liquefied gas storage.

Cryogenic storage will come in a range of sizes and capacities, starting from 500m3 but with preference on 1000m3 and above.

IDESA & Cryospain: the sum of the experience and know-how of two companies.

On one hand, IDESA brings its extensive experience in the manufacturing of large-scale pressure equipment. On the other, Cryospain’s high technology in cryogenic insulation, particularly in high vacuum. This combination makes it possible to bring cutting-edge technical solutions to market in record time.

In fact, IDESA and Cryospain are already working together on a first large-scale Bunkering Project in Spain owned by Endesa and located in Bay of Algeciras(Cádiz). The project consists of four 1000 m3 LNG tanks that IDESA will manufacture, transport and install on site with the support of Cryospain. The entire design process is done in 3D using computer aided design software (Solid Edge).

Full mechanical design will be performed by IDESA, including the FEA analysis, in accordance to applicable design code (ASME, EN..etc) and technical specifications.

Meanwhile, Cryospain will carry out the complex piping system for the connection of the tanks. It will be done in accordance to ASME B31.3 code and by an stress analysis using FEA software.

Cryospain will provide its extensive experience in cryogenic equipment manufacturing and will be in charge of:

  • Helium leak tests for inner and outer tanks
  • Installation & vacuum of the entire high-efficiency insulation system, essentially made up of expanded perlite
  • Supply of the equipment protection systems, such as the vent valves and pressure and vacuum safety valves

IDESA will carry out the manufacturing, testing and surface protection of the tanks at its facilities in Avilés.

The final installation of the four tanks as well as the vaporizers and their interconnection piping will be carried out by IDIP (Idesa Industrial Plants).
