And it’s a huge responsibility. Almost 20% of the world's LNG production relies on B&K VIBRO machine monitoring systems. 

Be honest with yourself; are your production assets running reliably enough with minimal downtime and low life-cycle costs? If not, you may have to re-evaluate the legacy machine condition monitoring system you are currently using. Condition monitoring technology has advanced over the years. We can help.

Since 1993, from Australia to Oman to Nigeria, we‘ve been helping improve uptime and ensure the safe and reliable supply of LNG thanks to advanced machinery protection and condition monitoring technology that makes your machinery run longer, better. Our comprehensive, plant-wide condition monitoring solution offers:

  • Monitoring all processes in LNG plants– LNG train (CO2, H2S, Hg removal, dehydration, liquefaction, N2 removal), condensate and water removal, fractionation, power generation, LNG storage and loading

  • Monitoring many types of machines – For a 6-train plant, there are typically 1860 machines monitored (150 critical machines, 750 fin-fans, 960 balance-of-plant machines)

  • Seemless data historian integration – Only our solution offers a complete integration that includes storing time waveforms in the  OSIsoft PI system. This eliminates the need for proprietary vibration monitoring servers (with their expensive maintenance fees), simplifies system architecture and provides superior cyber security. Moreover, a proprietary monitoring system often depends on the know-how of a limited number of people. Integration into OSIsoft PI ensures a much better integration of condition monitoring expertise into daily operations.

  • Designed with a holistic monitoring strategy in mind – Multiple monitoring techniques employed including process parameters and performance monitoring gives a better and more reliable overview on the health of your assets. This is complemented by robust and reliable hardware that records and stores critical data even when there is no network available.

  • Big data analysis – We can provide statistical and prognostic analysis of your data to help you make better decisions on your asset management


Our monitoring solution bundles:

Technology

Refined fault detection, data management, diagnostics and prognostic capability. Intelligent data handling techniques ensure all data are recorded during critical events. No need to connect portable equipment to monitor transient conditions like a coast-down.

Service

Remote and onsite specialists who train operators, maintain systems and perform diagnostics/root cause analysis. We also provide customer specific requests such as statistical/AI analysis.

Experience

We have been monitoring LNG plants world-wide for decades. This includes thousands of machines from 21 liquefactions trains from both land-based and floating LNG plants. That represents almost 20% of all the installed LNG capacity (2018), 65 million tonnes per annum.
