The GCU (Gas Combustion Unit) developed by SAACKE makes the safe transport of liquefied natural gas (LNG) at sea possible. It utilises surplus boil-off gas completely and with maximum availability.
The GCU combines a burner with an air-cooled steel combustion chamber. All components are built so compactly that the entire system can be accommodated in the area of the funnel and saves valuable installation space in the ship. The GCU has several power-saving blowers, is ignited with either oil or gas and can be run at full load within a few minutes.
Thanks to its design, which is specially adapted to the ship-specific requirements, the GCU combines all the advantages of economical, operationally reliable and environmentally friendly combustion at sea. This applies to both the GCU compact series and the new SAACKE GCU evo.
