Wison Offshore & Marine on Wednesday said it has undocked the world’s first barge-based Floating Storage and Regasification Unit built for Exmar of Belgium from its dry dock in Nantong, China. 

Upon the undocking, the topside installation has been completed, Wison said, clearing the way for the delivery of the facility.

According to Wison, this is the first FSRU being built in China and the world’s first FSRU with small-scale storage capacity.

The non-propelled FSRU barge has a regasification capacity of 600 mmscfd and two cargo tanks with a capacity to hold 12,500-cbm of LNG.

It is the second project on which Wison and Exmar have been cooperating following the Caribbean FLNG.

Wison noted in its statement that the hull and the topside modules of the FSRU have been fabricated simultaneously, adding that it has also developed its own cargo containment system and handling system for the IHI SPB tanks.

The regasification module has already been applied in the final performance test of the Caribbean FLNG project as its temporary regasification skid.
