Samsung Heavy Industries wins order to build LNG-FSRU
Samsung Heavy Industries Co., Ltd.("SHI") won an order to build a LNG-FSRU(Floating Storage and Regasification Unit) for about KRW 250 billion, the company said in its press release.
SHI revealed on 19th a newbuild order for a 170,000㎥ LNG-FSRU received from a consortium of Marubeni, Sojitz, and Pertamina.
LNG-FSRU is a specialized vessel-like facility that regasifies LNG offshore and supply it directly to onshore demand.
The latest FSRU from SHI will be equipped with Samsung's newly developed in-house regasification system, The S-Regas(GI). The regasification system is one of main equipment for FSRUs.
S-Regas(GI) reduces chance of corrosion from traditional method of heating LNG directly with seawater, and is another energy efficient solution from SHI saving energy by 5%.
SHI earlier showcased the system in September to 19 ship-owner companies.
