Exmar has announced that it has taken delivery of the world's first barge-based floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU).
Delivered from the Wison shipyard in the Chinese port of Nantong, the unit’s specifications include a maximum regasification capacity of 600 million ft3/d and a storage capacity of 26 000 m3 of LNG.
The delivery is being hailed by Exmar as a major breakthrough, as the FSRU has become the first of a new generation of barge-based floating regasification assets. The company anticipates the unit becoming a pivotal part of its global portfolio of medium-sized LNG import projects.
Nicolas Saverys, CEO of Exmar, said: “The delivery of the FSRU is a testimony of Exmar’s commitment to continuously improve the solutions we offer to the LNG supply chain industry.”
Long-term employment for the FSRU has been established and hiring will begin from mid-2018.
