Wison Offshore & Marine said it has received approval in principle (AIP) from Bureau Veritas for its large-scale floating LNG storage and regasification terminal.

Featuring scalable storage capacity up to the equivalent size of a Q-Max LNG carrier, this is the first large-scale FSRU barge design that has been granted AIP by a classification society.

This full-size floating LNG terminal solution aims to be an alternative to the conventional LNG regasification vessels targeting markets with long-term demand.

The barge design lowers initial capital investments (up to 20 percent compared with LNG regasification vessels of equivalent size) as well as O&M costs, while enabling uninterrupted service throughout the project lifecycle.

David Chen, senior solution manager at Wison Offshore & Marine said that Wison’s large-scale FSRU is a fit-for-purpose facility featuring scalable storage capacity from 150,000 cubic meters to 265,000 cubic meters and a base case design of 750 mmscfd regasification capacity expandable to fit project needs.

“Designed for near-shore/at-shore application, the FSRU can also be deployed offshore with a single point mooring system,” Chen said.

Wison is soon to deliver world’s first FSRU barge under an EPC contract and world’s first FLNG barge achieved final delivery most recently.

A month ago, BV granted AIP for Wison’s 50MW floating LNG power supply barge (50MW W-FSRP).
