Over the last 50 years Nexans Cryogenic Systems has been pioneer in the development of cryogenic systems with several world firsts in superconducting systems, ship-to-shore LH2 transfer systems, or particle accelerators. Discover here some of our key realisations.
LH2 Maritime Supply Chain : HySTRA project
Nexans Highflex inner diameter
Total length of the line
LH2 flow rate
Kawasaki Heavy Industries Ltd. built a ship-to-shore transfer terminal for liquefied hydrogen as part of the HESC demonstration initiative. 2 ports terminal have been equipped with Nexans HIGHFLEX solutions (Kobe in Japan and Hastings in Australia). Nexans equipped the loading arms with high-flexibility vacuum insulated transfer lines which connects the LH2 facility to the ships bunker stations. This is a world' first.
LH2/LOX/GHe Aerospace infrastructures: Sriharikota High Altitude Range (SHAR)
Nexans Highflex references
Cryogenic fluids transfered
Satish Dhawan (SHAR) is a rocket launch space center with facilities for the launching of sounding rockets and multi-stage satellite launch vehicles, operated by Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO).
Nexans provided vacuum insulated flexible hoses for the safe transport of LH2 and LOX rocket fuel.
LH2 Aerospace infrastructures: DLR German Aerospace Center
Diameter of Nexans CRYOFLEX®
Total length of the line
DLR German Aerospace Center is the Federal Republic of Germany's research center for aeronautics and space. They conduct research and development activities in the fields of aeronautics, space, energy, transport. Nexans solutions equip the missile test stand with long distance LH2 transfer lines.
Nexans CRYOFLEX® is in operation in this facility
LNG infrastructures : Seaspan
Seaspan, a leading independent owner, operator and manager of modern vessels uses Nexans vacuum insulated Highflex transfer lines type DN50 DN100 for LNG on bunker arms, including Highflex DN25 exhaust lines. The products are installed on a ferry going back and forth between Vancouver and Vancouver Island. The refueling by means of LNG takes place from a truck directly on the ferry.
Triumf particle accelerator
LHE line total length
Customized 4-wall Nexans CRYOFLEX® Design type
GHE line total length
GHe Nexans HIGHFLEX return line
Triumf in Vancouver is Canada’s particle accelerator centre, pushing the frontiers in research to advance science, medicine, and industry. The facility built a new cryogenic experiment that uses liquid helium as a primary cooling medium. Nexans designed specific transfer lines to supply the liquid helium cryostat from the helium liquefaction plant. In the installed system, part of the return gas from the cryostat is used to cool down a radiation shield that minimizes heat transfer to the liquid helium and reduces helium boil-off.
