PaxOcean Delivers Largest FSRU To Be Built In China

PaxOcean has delivered a 26,000m3 floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) to Indonesia-based Jaya Samudra Karunia (JSK). The Karunia Dewata is the largest FSRU to be built in China and the first to feature Type C cargo tanks. The unit was built at PaxOcean’s Zhoushan Shipyard to Lloyd’s Register’s (LR) Rules for the Classification of Ships and Provisional Rules for LNG Ships and Barges Equipped with Regasification Systems.

The project is a major milestone in the growing gas shipping industry within China and will help increase the development of Indonesia’s gas supply chain, where the unit will be based. It will be capable of regasifying around 50 million standard cubic feet per day.

Leveraging its global reach and gas shipping expertise, LR provided bespoke support to the project through a range of services. LR has been the leading technical service provider to the gas supply chain for over 50 years and has a wealth of experience in large gas projects. LR teams in Singapore, Korea, Indonesia and China all contributed to the success of this complex project.

This is the first FSRU that PaxOcean have built – LR was able to help address this challenge through its connections with equipment manufacturers that it had previously worked with on other projects, to help ensure efficient procedures and deliver a high-quality product on schedule and in accordance with LR’s rule requirements.

PaxOcean Engineering Director, Mr. Lixin Bian, commented: “This is an important milestone for PaxOcean. The design is focused on simple and reliable operation for Indonesian water. By working closely with Lloyd’s Register on classification requirements, and international maritime legislations for vessels carrying liquefied gases in bulk, PaxOcean has successfully designed, built and delivered the largest FSRU with type C cargo tanks in China in our Zhoushan Shipyard.”

LR’s East China Area Manager, Mr. GZ Wang, said: “This is a great achievement for LR, PaxOcean and JSK who have all worked extensively on this technically challenging project. As this was first gas project in PaxOcean’s Zhoushan Shipyard, LR ensured we put together the best team for the project with the right mix of skills, knowledge and experience to support PaxOcean and deliver the FSRU on schedule to a high standard. The cooperation between the various LR teams in China, Singapore, Korea and Indonesia all helped ensure a common approach to the project was delivered.”
