Launching unique solution:

A highly cost efficient and robust small scale LNG sea transportation and floating storage facility

Kanfer Shipping is launching their small scale LNG shipping and floating terminal solution. The solution is based on the US Articulated Tug Barge (ATB) also called push barge, and can entail substantial savings on infrastructure cost.

One approach is one tug and one barge that work as an ordinary small scale LNG ship. The other is one tug and two barges where one barge will at any given time be used as a storage facility while the other barge is on its way from/to the LNG source.
Kanfer Shipping has been working with this solution for the last two years together with partners and have now come up with a highly cost efficient and robust solution.
“We can do nothing with the LNG prices, but we are making a large impact on the infrastructure cost”, says founder and Managing Partner of Kanfer Shipping, Stig Hagen.
A patented and robust ATB design is made to operate in rough weather with LNG on board. The ATB has also an AIP (approval in principle) and the solution has been brought to shipyards for pricing. It could now be proven that this design is not only robust and seaworthy, but has a highly competitive CAPEX as well as OPEX compared to ordinary small scale LNG ships. With two barges it will in addition become a floating storage/terminal solution.
“There are more financial risk in investing in onshore terminal than floating terminals. Time to market and CAPEX are less than building onshore facilities. Together with a partnering ship owner we can own the solution and charter it out to clients”, says Mr. Hagen.
Kanfer Shipping has several LOIs (letter of intents) and working concrete projects on three continents. The company is also pleased to confirm having a North American investor from the maritime industry as a shareholder of Kanfer Shipping. “This will provide additional know how, experience and professionalism to Kanfer Shipping’s global approach” concludes Mr. Hagen.
