End of July, TGE Marine Gas Engineering signed the contract for one of the world’s first floating storage and regasification units (FSRU) for the design and supply of the cargo handling system and tank material package with Jiangnan Shipyard group. The 28,000 m3 capacity barge type FRU was ordered by TEMA LNG which is backed by Helios Investment from London and shall be located in Ghana.
In close co-operation with the owner and the shipyard, TGE Marine has participated in the development of this new flexible design working in parallel with a larger floating storage unit (FSU). The barge is a 2 tank version with an individual cylindrical tank size of 14,000 m3 . Five modular compact regas skids will provide a peak send-out rate of 335 t/h or approx. 2,9 mio. tons per year at a send-out pressure of 65 bar.
TGE Marine has worked for quite some years on several concepts for small scale LNG regas units for island supply or areas which have no pipeline access. With more than 20 large LNG-FSRU’s in service, TGE considers this order as a breakthrough for the small scale LNG market especially for the supply of natural gas for power plants.
