ECONNECT Energy was founded in 2012 based on a belief that clean energy should be accessible and affordable. Challenging “business as usual” in the maritime, shipping and energy sectors, ECONNECT Energy pioneered the world’s first jettyless transfer of LNG, addressing the need for a cost-effective and environmentally-sound solution in the LNG value chain.
Located in Oslo, Norway, ECONNECT Energy is positioned among many innovative companies leading the technology revolution in offshore energy.
In 2012 ECONNECT Energy wanted to simplify LNG transfer from ship to shore; analysis showed that fixed port infrastructures were incredibly expensive, detrimental to marine biodiversity and with project schedules expanding over the course of years, rather than months. After interviews with maritime companies, experts and ship captains, it was apparent that there was a tremendous opportunity to simplify LNG cargo offloading and berthing possibilities. The question then became:
"Is there a way to bring the jetty to the ship, rather than the ship to the jetty?"
Today, ECONNECT Energy is an independent Norwegian technology company assisting the midstream, downstream and maritime markets with a jettyless IQuay™ transfer system. The IQuay technology features a game-changing floating platform system for loading, reloading and bunkering of LNG, renewable fuels and CO2 for sequestration without the need for invasive, time-and cost-intensive fixed infrastructure. With innovative technology we are committed to expanding clean, sustainable and climate positive energy solutions globally.
The team at ECONNECT Energy are leading the way to a future of jettyless transfer.
We are committed to solving energy infrastructure challenges through our consultancy services and proprietary technology solutions.
