The unit, which has a re-gasification capacity of up to 600MMSCFD and a storage capacity of 26,000 m³ of LNG, is the world's first barge-based floating LNG storage and re-gasification unit (FSRU)
There the unit will undergo site specific modifications before departing to its project destination to commence its long-term employment mid-2018 in line with its time charter commitments.
This is an important step in the successful implementation of the barge-based regasification strategy of Exmar, said the company.
The FSRU is the first, new built regasification barge in the world, built on a speculative basis by Exmar, and the FSRU was able to obtain a long-term contract prior to her delivery from the yard.
Exmar informed that more information on the FSRU charterer and the location will be released at a later stage.
