TIANJIN CITY, China—Sinopec Tianjin LNG has embarked on phase two of an expansion at its receiving terminal in Tianjin and has turned to Trelleborg Marine and Infrastructure for the project.
When complete, the expansion project will increase Sinopec's Tianjin LNG annual liquid natural gas import and regasification capacity by 4.8 million metric tons per year to 10.8 million tons annually.
"We are extremely proud to have been selected to further strengthen our relationship with Sinopec's Tianjin LNG receiving terminal and continue to play an important part in a landmark project that will serve the increased natural gas demand in the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region, helping to support the transition to cleaner energy and a more sustainable future for northern China," Richard Hepworth, president of Trelleborg Marine and Infrastructure said in a statement.
In a June 28 news release, Trelleborg said it was supplying high-performance Quick Release Hooks, Docking Aid System, Ship-Shore Links and Environmental Monitoring System for the project.
Trelleborg noted that Quick Release Hooks, which have been in use since 1972, are the foundation for modern mooring systems, allowing mooring lines to be secured safely and released quickly once loaded to their safe working load limit. Sizes and configurations vary, allowing for proper safety use and compliance with international standards.
