TMC Compressors of the Seas (TMC) has signed two contracts to supply a total of five marine compressors to a floating storage regasifaction unit (FSRU) that Hyundai Heavy Industries is building for Swan Energy Ltd.
The company has signed a contract directly with Hyundai Heavy Industries to provide three service and control air compressors to the South-Korean shipyard. The compressors will be delivered in the 3Q18.
In addition, the company has signed a subcontractor deal with another supplier to provide two feed air compressors to a nitrogen system delivery to the FSRU. This compressor delivery will be made in July 2018.
TMC’s contract values are undisclosed.
The FSRU that Hyundai Heavy Industries is building for Swan Energy will have a storage capacity of 180 000 m3 with an ultimate gas send out rate of 1000 million ft3/d. The FSRU will be used at Swan Energy’s LNG import terminal in Jafrabad, Gujarat, India. Once completed, the FSRU will be moored to a fixed jetty and regasify imported LNG to enable distribution by pipeline grid and road tanker.
The terminal, with the capacity to handle 5 million t of LNG per annum, is being set up by Swan Energy’s unit, Swan LNG Pvt. Ltd.
“To secure one contract for this FSRU is great, and to win two contracts is fantastic. I believe this confirms that shipyards and subcontractors to the big yards are increasingly moving away from marinised land-based compressors and instead opt for compressed air systems that have been designed an developed solely for offshore and marine applications,” says Hans Petter Tanum, TMC’s director of sales and business development.
