MAN Cryo Tank Connection Space (TCS) is the heart of the Fuel Gas Supply System and contains all necessary function for supply of gas to engines from the LNG tank.
The TCS is designed as one complete unit handling all functions associated with tank control and vaporization. It receives LNG from Bunkering Station, routes LNG to vaporizers, PBUs or pumps and discharges gas at correct temperature and pressure to consumers. It has a stainless steel gas-tight enclosure to handle cryogenic spillage without hazard to other parts of the ship. It is prepared for ventilation according to class regulations. The TCS can be either attached to the LNG tank or be supplied as a separate free standing unit.
The TCS also includes systems for nitrogen, instrument air and vent headers.
