ABS has announced that it has provided safety guidance and advice on regulatory compliance to Hanjin Heavy Industries and Construction Co. Ltd. (HHIC) as it completed the design concept of a new floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU).
The 25 000 m3 design concept incorporates four type C cargo tanks to simplify the transfer of gas to the storage terminal. In reviewing this new design, ABS applied its latest safety standards and confirmed that the conceptual design meets applicable class requirements.
ABS Vice President for Global Gas Solutions, Patrick Janssens, said: “Industry is exploring options for getting gas to new and expanding markets […] As a technology leader, ABS is working with innovators who are looking more closely at FSRUs as a flexible and efficient gas delivery solution.”
HHIC Executive Managing Director, Moon-Tae Yoon, added: “Partnering with ABS and leveraging its knowledge and experience in LNG regasification helped us prove the feasibility of the concept and better understand the safety implications throughout development of the design […] This project is an important milestone for HHIC, and this type of asset will serve a critical need in markets that are looking for efficient ways to get gas.”
