Wison delivers FSRU to Exmar

Wison Offshore & Marine (Wison) has completed final delivery of the world’s first barge-based floating LNG storage and re-gasification unit (FSRU) to Belgian company Exmar. The recipient company has confirmed that long-term employment for the FSRU starting from mid-2018 has been secured.

The FSRU barge constructed at Wison Nantong shipyard features an LNG storage capacity of 25,000m³ and a re-gasification capacity of 600MMSCFD. It is the first ever FSRU project undertaken by a Chinese company on an EPC basis. A modularized approach helped shorten the schedule and lowered the risks associated in the construction phase, while a dedicated cargo handling system for the SPB tanks has been developed.

This barge-based FSRU serves as a flexible LNG receiving solution, which reduces CapEx and lead time possible for project developers.
