MAN Cryo PU insulated IMO type C independent tanks are designed to store liquefied gas for further distribution to consumers in a safe and environmentally friendly way.

Tank location could be either on deck or inside hull of almost any type of ship.

The low pressure tank design is intended to be equipped with a fuel pump to feed vaporizer and ship’s consumers at correct pressure. Design can also be adapted to a higher pressure to work as a cold converter without any rotating equipment.

Volume and diameter adapted to suit different installation solutions depending on ship’s general arrangement.
