Chinese shipbuilder scores world's first

Wison Offshore and Marine has succesfully launched of its barge-based floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) – the first of its kind in the world.

The facility was undocked from Wison’s drydock in Nantong, China.

The non-propelled FSRU barge has a regasification capacity of 600 million standard cubic feet of gas per day.

Two SPB cargo tanks, each with a capacity of 12,500 cubic metres, are installed in the hull for LNG storage. The principal attractions of the tanks are a proven immunity to sloshing problems that allows LNG ships to go to sea partially loaded – even in harsh weather – and a customizable geometry that, among other benefits, results in the kind of flat-deck vessels needed for floating processing plants

“The successful undocking of the FSRU once again verifies Wison’s strong competence in the lump sum turnkey projects for floating LNG facilities. We’re dedicated to providing more economic, fast-track solutions to a wide range of industry clients,” said An Wenxin, the senior vice rresident of Wison Offshore & Marine.

Headquartered in Shanghai, Wison Offshore & Marine owns and operates two fabrication yards in Nantong and Zhoushan, China.
