Abstract

To decrease its environmental impact, naval sector needs to develop new approaches regarding both the design and the operation of on-board energy systems, mainly to reduce pollutant in port areas. An effective solution comes from liquefied natural gas (LNG) and hybrid diesel-LNG engines. In this paper, a small scale plug&play system to produce liquefied natural gas for on-site purposes is presented. Different supply pressure from the natural gas network are taken under consideration. A parametric analysis on key cycle parameters is conducted to optimize and reduce energy consumption of the overall process taking into account various layouts. Two liquefaction processes are defined, considering respectively a Joule-Thompson valve and a turbo-expander for the gas liquefaction. In the final section, a specific case study on the Port of Ravenna is presented with also an economic analysis regarding the feasibility of the plant.
