James Hermary heads the development of LNG flexible hose solutions within Trelleborg Fluid Handling Solutions, leading a multidisciplinary design and testing team, building a full range of innovative marine LNG transfer solutions based on the Cryoline LNG hose.
Prior to this, James had worked during ten years in the automotive industry, working on technologies aiming at reducing vehicles emissions. Hence, James has been deeply involved in the development of gasoline injection systems, exhaust gas depollution technologies and hybrid vehicles lithium ion battery packs.
Graduated in Mechanical Engineering, James took advantage from his experience in the management of multidisciplinary development teams.
Hence, the Cryoline LNG hose involves a large variety of knowledge and skills, as it combines extreme and antagonistic performances, able to operate in harsh marine environments, while conveying LNG at cryogenic temperature, and integrating high end monitoring devices.
Its design and qualification required the use of advanced computational tools, and complex full scale testing means.
James is now focused on bringing the Cryoline LNG floating hose as a key driver in the development of cost effective near shore and ship to shore LNG transfer solutions.
