The Coolest Job at KAEFER
It takes a special kind of expert to control the freezing temperatures of minus 163°C necessary to handle, store and supply liquefied natural gas (LNG). KAEFER has over 40 years of experience in LNG and some say that those who work there quite literally have the coolest job in the company.
From high-performance insulation at gas plants and pipelines to storage and transportation tanks, we provide a wide range of services and solutions for the whole gas handling chain.
In fact, we have two specialised divisions dedicated to LNG – our Corporate Competence Center Liquefied Gases (CCCL) and the LNG Solutions Center. Both are staffed with experts who are specialists in adapting to challenging scenarios and bespoke applications where mechanical and thermal tensions are high.
The KAEFER LNG Solutions Center focuses on delivering sophisticated and intelligent solutions and services to major LNG projects. We have developed a pre-insulation process for pipes, which is modular and flexible, allowing pipes to be insulated efficiently before they are installed on site. This means they are not subject to environmental variables and the process saves time and money by ensuring high quality and lower levels of manpower and scaffolding. Furthermore, our system is highly mobile and can be set up in close proximity to large-scale projects around the world – this shortens transit times and lowers costs as well.
