Kaliningard FSRU to be classed by RS

Russian Maritime Register of Shipping (RS) has been selected to class the floating storage and regasification unit being built by Hyundai Heavy Industries for Gazprom Flot.

RS said in its statement on Monday that the vessel will receive the Arc4 classification, enabling its navigation in the average one-year ice up to 0.9 up to 0.9 meters thick in summer and autumn. The FSRU will also be foreseen with anti-icing protection means to ensure its continuous operation at low temperatures down to -30°C.

The 174,100 cbm FSRU is scheduled for delivery by the end of 2017 when Gazprom expects it to receive its first cargoes. The terminal will be set-up on the Baltic coast and connected to the existing gas pipeline near the Kaliningradskoye underground gas storage facility.

However, the FSRU will be subsequently replaced by the Baltic LNG project.
