LPG stands for Liquefied Petroleum Gas, and LNG stands for Liquefied Natural Gas. Tankers that use these gases leverage the natural physical affect that gas, when brought down to extreme temperatures of -48°C to -164°C depending on the type, is liquefied and takes up just a fraction of its volume compared to its gas state.

One challenge is the technical insulation of their low-temperature systems, which also require uninterrupted monitoring. R&M faces this challenge with the help of fiber-optic measurement technology. It uses a number of sensors to measure the temperature of insulation in the different areas. The icing of pipe systems caused by sea water spraying up on the deck poses another challenge. R&M offers a system that uses vibration to reliably de-ice the pipes.

Product and chemical carriers

A product tanker transports end liquids such as fuel, cooking oil or gas fuel in specially coated tanks – while a chemical tanker is laden with acid, alkali or other liquid chemicals, usually in stainless steel tanks.

Both ship types require the highest level of insulation for the tanks and for fire protection – a task for the R&M team of experts. As with all swimming workplaces, relaxation and physical recuperation are also extremely important and need to be supported by an aesthetically pleasing interior design.

R&M delivers customized crew cabins with integrated wet units tailored to customers’ specific needs and just in time – while also meeting the highest level of quality for special shipping requirements. The same goes for messes and recreation rooms and lounges. Our emphasis on quality even holds true for the galley.
