Wison Offshore & Marine has completed final delivery of the barge-based floating LNG storage and regasification unit (FSRU) to Belgian company Exmar.

The FSRU constructed at Wison Nantong shipyard features an LNG storage capacity of 25,000 cubic meters and a re-gasification capacity of 600 mmscfd, Wison said in a statement.

It is the first ever FSRU project undertaken by a Chinese company on EPC basis. The delivery of the FSRU is another milestone for Wison following the delivery of the Caribbean FLNG in January this year.

On its part, Exmar, the Nicolas Savery-led shipowner, noted that it is the world’s first barge-based FSRU and is the first of the new generation of floating regasification assets, barge-based, and aimed at catering for the needs of medium-sized LNG import projects.

In addition to taking the delivery of the vessel, Exmar said it has secured long-term employment for the FSRU starting from mid-2018 onwards, without disclosing the name of the charterer.

However, the company did say it will provide further details on the contract in the near future.
