The vicinity of our head office in Luebeck allows us to maintain a certain natural closeness to the maritime industry of the North Sea and the Baltic Sea. Liquids and gas in pipelines are transported on all ships, platforms and most port facilities. In the last few years, ms con-cept has specialized in delivering pipes and pipes accessories to customers who produce pipes for purposes of transport and storage of liquid natural gas. Initially, ships were only retrofitted for propulsion with LNG (liquid natural gas). Increasingly today the trend towards the use of LNG as a clean fuel also includes diverse projects for the construction of new projects. Due to the heat extraction when LNG turns into a gaseous state, high demands are placed on the materials which come into contact with the medium.
ms con-cept commissions the testing of the materials and subsequent certification to be carried out by classification companies such as BV, LRS, DNV-GL.
Predominantly, 304(L) and 316(L) stainless steels are used for these applications.
