SAACKE GCU evo
SAACKE are breaking new ground in methane combustion on LNG tankers with this new product - the GCU evo.
The further development of the well-known GCU series, the first Gas Combustion Units ever - which have been designed by SAACKE from 2004 on, consists of a cost-effective combination of the combustion unit with a modified grid burner.
In order to take into account, the ever-decreasing space available in the engine room of LNG tankers, SAACKE have designed this system solution with significantly smaller dimensions - with the same or even improved performance. In addition to saving space, the new model offers further advantages such as:
The optimized design not only reduces the required space on board, but also the installation costs for Owners when using a SAACKE GCU.
Maintenance costs can be reduced, due to the lower complexity of the system.
No special foundation is required for the GCU evo
This GCU system is currently unrivaled on the market
The further development does not forego the proven strengths of the GCU classic such as fail-safe control, electric ignition and the 100 % free-flow solution for combustion of the methane components in the climate-damaging boil-off gas without a compressor and at very low pressure.
The GCU evo, is available in different output sizes from 0,4 to 4,5 t/h methane combustion with various size gradations and an output of 5,5 to 63 MW.
