Wison Unveils Its LNG Distributor Design

Shanghai-based Wison Offshore & Marine (Wison) has developed a multi-functional carrier named Wison-LNG-Distributor (LNGD) with scalable capacity between 5000 to 20,000 cubic meters.

The vessel, which integrates the functions of LNG loading, bunkering and container delivery, “could make regional LNG redistribution more affordable and efficient,” according to the company.

While conventional LNG carriers are designed to load, transfer and unload full cargoes between two terminal points, the LNG Distributor was designed to distribute partial loads to coastal areas in regions such as Indian subcontinent, Southeast Asia, the Caribbean, and Northern Europe.

It can operate at a shallow draft of 4.5 meters and deliver cargoes in areas where LNG carriers with similar capacity cannot access. Additionally, the azimuth thruster propulsion system provides superior maneuverability, eliminating the need for tug assistance.

Wison informed that the vessel features a bunkering arm, which facilitates a quick connection with the receiving facility and a short turn-around time. The loading arm will connect to the receiving unit’s manifold, thereby eliminating the need for a hose transfer system at each receiving point.

“Our LNGD solution will become a key enabler for small-scale FSRU and FSRP development in the areas that are either inaccessible or too small to be commercially feasible served by a large-scale floating unit or land facility,” Cui Ying, CEO of Wison Offshore and Marine, said.
