PSA Marine Bangladesh, a unit of PSA Marine, will provide berthing, mooring, pilot and personnel transfer services to LNG ships calling at Summit LNG FSRU terminal, with its three escort tugboats, one fast crew boat and one offshore supply vessel.

The operations under the contract are expected to start in early 2019, SPI said in a statement.

This project is part of SPI’s $1 billion investment programme to deliver 1,000 MW of power and gas in Bangladesh.

Speaking of the project, SPI chairman, Muhammed Aziz Khan said that the company will provide infrastructure to cater for Bangladesh’s demand for 15 million tons of LNG per year.
