TMC Compressors (TMC) has received a contract from Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) to deliver a marine compressed air system to a floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) currently under construction for Höegh LNG.
Under the contract – the value of which remains undisclosed - TMC will deliver a complete marine compressed air system consisting of 2 x 44 kW service air compressors and 2 x 44 kW control air compressors.
The compressed air system will be utilised at a newbuild 170 000 m3 FSRU, which is scheduled for delivery in 2Q19. It will have a regasification capacity of 750 million ft3/d (minimum).
The contract also includes options to deliver similar compressed air systems to three additional FSRUs that the shipyard may build for Höegh LNG. These vessels have scheduled delivery dates of one unit in 2019 and two units in 2020.
Per Kjellin, Managing Director of TMC, said: “Höegh LNG has one of the world’s biggest fleets of TMC compressors for FSRUs. We are very pleased that they, in cooperation with Samsung Heavy Industries, have once again selected our technology for their projects.”
TMC has recently signed two additional contracts to supply marine compressed air systems to newbuild FSRUs, including one with Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME), which is building a unit for BW LNG, and another with Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI), which is building a unit for Höegh LNG.
