Gulf Cryo receives Supply Achievement Award

01 September 2021

Gulf Cryo, one of the leading providers of industrial gas solutions, has received a Supply Achievement Award from Hyundai Engineering Co for its supply of Liquid Nitrogen (LIN) at the world’s largest Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) terminal in Al Zour, Kuwait.

According to a statement from Gulf Cryo, the award was given as a result of an unrivalled supply performance during the commissioning phase of the world's largest single construction LNG terminal at Al Zour, Kuwait designed to import as much as 22 million tonnes of LNG per year. In an unprecedented move, Gulf Cryo has successfully supplied Al Zour LNG Terminal with more than 2,700 metric tonnes of Liquid Nitrogen (LIN) to cooldown the LNG terminal’s facilities hitting a temperature of -120-degC prior to unloading the LNG from ships to storage tanks. The whole procedure was complete in no longer than a week time, and the LIN has been fully supplied through Gulf Cryo’s cryogenic gas production plants in Kuwait. Day four of the supply event marked the peak in supply where the LIN consumption reached 540 metric tonnes per day.

“We are glad to have provided an innovative and world class solution that is highly efficient and well-suited to meet the significant requirements of our customer. The success of this supply is a hallmark of our performance and supply chain competency,” said Amer Huneidi, Executive Chairman of Gulf Cryo.
