Newbuild FSRU vessels to feature modular re-gas systems

Offshore staff

ULSAN, South KoreaHyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) has contracted Wärtsilä to supply seawater/propane-based regasification modules.

These will be installed on floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) vessels owned by Höegh LNG and Gazprom.

There is an option for a further contract from HHI for another Höegh vessel that is valid until December.

Both regasification systems will be modularized to facilitate installation, and will be supplied with seawater filter and steam/seawater heating modules.

Gazprom’s system will be winterized to allow it to operate in temperatures down to -30°C (-22°F).

Use of printed circuit heat exchangers and plate heat exchangers will lead to more compact and lighter solutions, Wärtsilä adds, and use of seawater for heating will reduce carbon dioxide emissions.
