Exmar said its FSRU (Floating Storage and Regasification Unit) barge delivered end of 2017 has left the Wison Offshore Marine shipyard on Wednesday left the Wison Offshore Marine shipyard in China and set course towards Singapore.

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.
