Wison Lays Keel for Exmar FSRU

Shanghai-based Wison Offshore & Marine laid the keel for the barge-based floating LNG storage and regasification unit for the Exmar FSRU project in Nantong, China, on October 20, the first time for a Chinese company to undertake an FSRU project under an EPCIC contract.    

Under the agreement for the regasification unit, Wison Offshore & Marine will provide Exmar the turnkey engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning (EPCIC) solution for the project.

The Exmar FSRU, a non-propelled barge, will be equipped with two regasification plants of 400MMSCFD and 200MMSCFD regasification capacity, respectively. Two 13,160 m3 SPB Cargo Tanks will be installed in the hull for LNG storage, and an accommodation block suitable for 28 people will be also installed on the barge.

An Wenxin, Senior Vice President of Wison Offshore & Marine, said: “We highly appreciate the trust and support extended by Exmar during the project execution. It is with our joint efforts that we can celebrate the keel-laying today, which marks the project execution entering a new stage. We’re confident the project will achieve its final success.”
