Title: DEVICE FOR EVAPORATION OF LIQUEFIED NATURAL GAS
Abstract:
A device for evaporation of liquefied natural gas (LNG) on board a vessel (1). The device comprises a pipeline (6) through which LNG flows. The outside of the pipeline (6) may be brought in contact with a heating medium, for example seawater. According to the invention the pipeline (6) is immersed in the sea and is connected to the vessel (1). The pipeline (6) is enclosed by a shell (15) through which seawater is pumped by means of a pump (16), which is operated by a motor (17) on board the vessel.
