Wison delivers world's first barge-based FSRU to Exmar
SHANGHAI, China — Wison Offshore & Marine announced that the company has completed final delivery of the world’s first barge-based floating LNG storage and re-gasification unit (FSRU) to Belgian company Exmar, who has also confirmed that long-term employment for the FSRU starting from mid-2018 has been secured. Further to successful delivery of the Caribbean FLNG in January 2017, this marks another key milestone for the cooperative relationship between Wison and Exmar.

The FSRU barge constructed at Wison Nantong shipyard features an LNG storage capacity of 25,000 m³ and a re-gasification capacity of 600MMSCFD. It is the first ever FSRU project undertaken by a Chinese company on EPC basis. The project was executed with a quest for efficiency and openness to innovation. For instance, modularized approach shortened the schedule and lowered the risks associated in construction phase, while a dedicated cargo handling system for the SPB tanks has been developed.
This barge-based FSRU serves as a flexible LNG receiving solution which makes considerable reductions in CapEx and lead time possible for project developers. Wison is making firm progress in cementing its leading position in providing integrated solutions and project delivery services along LNG value chain.
GasPro 2.0: A Webcast Symposium
The global LNG industry is becoming increasingly interconnected as grassroots export projects get off the ground. Another technology route for processing gas into fuels—GTL—is attracting renewed attention due to improving economics. Small-scale solutions for both LNG and GTL are at the forefront of new technological developments, while major projects using more conventional technologies continue to start up around the world.
During this webcast, we will focus on LNG, GTL, gas processing technology developments and deployments, operations, small-scale solutions, transportation, trading, distribution, safety, regulatory affairs, business analysis and more.
