Norway-based FSRU provider Höegh LNG held a keel laying ceremony for its tenth floating storage and regasification unit at the Samsung Heavy Industries shipyard.
The vessel, currently named FSRU#10 – HN2220, will have a storage capacity of 170,000 cubic meters, featuring GTT’s Mark III membrane technology.
The FSRU is 297m long and 43m breadth and a maximum regasification capacity of 750 million standard cubic feet per day, Höegh LNG’s website reads.
The vessel is scheduled for delivery in the second quarter of 2019.
Earlier in the year, the company said it is in the process of raising debt financing for the vessel.
In its annual report released last month, Höegh LNG said it is focusing on securing long-term FSRU contracts for its units under construction.
