The Influence of Energy Consumption of Gas Vapour Reliquefaction on the Structure of the LNG Carrier Power Plant

This paper discusses the issues of reliquefaction of natural gas vapors on the Q-Flex type LNG tankers. DRL gas carrier power plant has been presented. The principle of operation of a BOG reliquefaction plant has been described. An energy analysis referring to nominal operational conditions has been performed. DRL LNG carrier’s power plant load at…

Development of LNG Infrastructure in Europe

The transport sector is the fastest growing consumer of energy and producer of greenhouse gases in the European Union. With new emission regulation these days the potential application for LNG are expanding. LNG provides a greener alternative to other fossil fuels, which can significantly contribute to improve European air quality and to reduce the existing…

A Model of Transatlantic Intermodal Freight Transportation Between the European Continent and the United States

This paper deals with intermodal transportation of goods from Europe to the United States. The main objective is the development of a mathematical model called Transatlantic multi-mode container routing problem. It provides a tool for network optimization in transportation science. The developed model enables users to determine the optimal collaborative routing in a network system…

On Fluid Dynamics of Freshwater and Seawater in Marine Systems

Interaction between freshwater and seawater can significantly influence marine life and create important productive and dynamic natural habitats, such as estuaries. We study such processes and for this purpose we develop a new mathematical model with the system of coupled nonlinear conservation equations that govern the interaction of the two incompressible fluids with different properties.…
