Hoegh LNG Takes Delivery of FSRU Independence

Höegh LNG of Norway has taken delivery of the “Independence”, the second of the four newbuilt FSRUs that the company has ordered from Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI), on May 12.

The “Independence” is under a long term charter to Klaipedos Nafta in Lithuania, which will commence no later than by the end of the year. In the interim, the company will deploy the unit in the short term LNG market, Höegh LNG said in a  statement.

Sveinung J.S. Støhle, President and CEO of Höegh LNG said: “We are proud to have reached this significant milestone together with Klaipedos Nafta and HHI and expanded our current fleet of FSRUs to four vessels. The “Independence” represents the most advanced and efficient FSRU in the market, and plays a key role in giving Lithuania the energy infrastructure necessary to diversify its sources of natural gas.”
