Miscellaneous offshore applications
Konutherm thermal fluid systems are suitable for a variety of heating purposes. Our systems are widely used to keep cargo and fuel at a specific temperature, but are designed for all offshore applications that require heating. Adding an exhaust gas heater to the thermal system allows for a high degree of energy recovery and fuel savings.
In Floating Storage and Offloading (FSO) vessels it is of utmost importance that crude oil can be transferred to cargo ships without any complications. This implies that this oil must continuously be kept at the required temperature. Konutherm thermail oil systems are well-suited for this.
On Floating Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) tankers Konutherm thermal oil or water-glycol systems can also be used safely and effectively to heat processes, fuels and other liquid cargo. A thermal heating system offers many options in terms of energy saving and heat recovery for these floating refineries. As an option, it can be used to efficiently produce steam and hot water for heating or cleaning operations on board.
