Wison Offshore & Marine’s 300MW floating storage regasification and power generation barge (FSRP) has received approval in principle from Lloyds Register.

Wison’s 300MW Class FSRP has been developed with a total storage capacity of 170,000 cubic meters in GTT membrane cargo tanks, and it features a CCGT power plant, available with an output of 150 – 450MW, Wison said.

The facility is designed for near-shore deployment with a minimal water depth of 12 meters. LNG will be loaded through a ship-to-ship transfer and regasified, feeding the gas turbines.

Waste heat from the turbines is recovered to generate steam, which in turn feeds the steam turbine generator. Electric power is stepped up to a high voltage before transmission to shore.

The fully integrated LNG-to-power facility is a solution for the supply of electricity to areas with limited infrastructure and remote locations.

Wison said it has also signed a joint development project (JDP) agreement with LR and GTT.

This includes the undertaking of more detailed design reviews, support for the preparation of Wison to build GTT membrane type LNG tanks as well as possible additional items like risk assessments.
