Innovative Geislinger Dampers and Couplings for Compressors on LNG Transport Vessels

Geislinger dampers and couplings for compressors used on LNG carriers help to significantly reduce CO2 emissions and make shipping more sustainable and efficient.

Our commitment to sustainability is reflected in the entire value chain of renewable energies. One part of it is LNG (liquefied natural gas), which is recognized as an environmentally friendly alternative to conventional fuels.

Transport ships for LNG usually emit leakage gas, which can be compressed with compressors equipped with our products and thus mixed with any fuel used on the ship. What may appear to be a waste product thus becomes a valuable resource for shipping. The compressed leakage gas now serves as an additional fuel for the ship’s engine. This breakthrough not only enables a more efficient use of resources, but also makes a significant contribution to reducing CO2 emissions, as this technology allows us to save environmentally harmful gas in the energy cycle.

Additionally, our couplings and dampers allow compressors to be operated at variable speeds. This flexibility has not only revolutionised the handling of leakage gas, but also eliminates problems when starting and stopping the compressor. The speed variability not only increases efficiency, but also extends the service life of the machines, which in turn leads to lower maintenance costs.

Switching to this sustainable solution not only makes ecological sense, but is also economically advantageous. The shipping companies not only benefit from a reduction of their CO2 emissions, but also from savings in fuel costs. Our mission is to have a positive impact on the environmental footprint of shipping through advanced technology. We are proud to make a contribution that not only increases efficiency, but also reduces the environmental footprint of our industry.

At a time when reducing greenhouse gases is crucial, we are committed to making our oceans more sustainable. The future of shipping is green and efficient – and we are proud to be at the forefront of this change. Stay connected with us in this exciting journey towards greener and more efficient shipping.
