KHOBRA LNG TRANSFER SYSTEM

The KHOBRA Transfer System, developed by Houlder and KLAW LNG, provides a safe and efficient hybrid hose handling solution for small to mid-scale LNG applications.

KHOBRA transfer system

Key to the success of the KHOBRA transfer system is a tensioner and compensation system that monitors and compensates for vessel motions and changes in draft. It protects the receiving vessel manifold from excessive forces during transfer and monitors the manifold position to check for vessel drift and trigger emergency shutdown or, ultimately, release through breakaway couplers if limits are reached.

Simpler, quicker to operate and safer than current hose operations, the KHOBRA transfer system utilises a standard ship crane to deploy a manifold connection and emergency release system to the receiving vessel.

Key components include:

  • Standard knuckle boom hydraulic marine crane
  • LNG transfer and / or vapour return lines (4” to 8”)
  • Safety Breakaway couplers (Active ERS valves)
  • Quick connection coupler
  • Flexible Transfer & Connection Cryogenic Hoses
  • Tensioning and Compensating System
  • Vessel Drift Envelope Limit Detection System
  • ESD Link (electric and fibre)
  • Landing Frame
  • Anchor System

The KHOBRA transfer system has been designed to provide small to mid-scale LNG operators with a cost-effective solution to maximise the efficiency and safety of LNG transfer. We are currently working with clients, Classification Societies and regulators and industry bodies to integrate the transfer system with bunkering barge and feeder vessel operations to support an LNG-fuelled maritime future.
