In the course of the world-wide efforts to save energy, the utilization of cold in connection with the regasification of liquefied natural gas gains more and more importance. The aim is the partial recovery of the energy consumed in liquefaction. There are particular advantages when using the closed-cycle gas turbine, in which the exergy of the liquefied natural gas is transformed to electrical energy with a very high efficiency. The paper deals with the optimization, design, and operational behavior of such a plant.
