Bureau Veritas Grants AIP for Wison’s Floating LNG Power Supply Barge

Shanghai-based Wison Offshore & Marine, part of Wison Group, informed that its newly-developed floating storage regasification and power generation barge (FSRP) has received approval in principle (AIP) from classification society Bureau Veritas.

W-FSRP integrates functions of LNG loading and storage facilities, regasification and power generation.

As explained, Wison, the turnkey service provider for the world’s first FLNG and FSRU barge, and Bureau Veritas have completed the validation for the specified design of 50MW FSRP.

“With the interest in small scale LNG-to-power growing, we are developing the building blocks for a lean and integrated supply chain. Combining LNG storage, regasification and power generation on a single facility significantly reduces the cost of infrastructure and makes small scale gas-to-power solutions more attractive,” Maarten Spilker, Senior Solutions Director of Wison Offshore & Marine, said.

“Bureau Veritas is very pleased to be involved at the very early stage of this 50MW FSRP design and to provide necessary technical assistance to Wison in order to help this Chinese shipyard develop a safe and effective power supply solution by near shore floating facilities to end users,” Jiahui Wu, Technical Manager of Bureau Veritas China, commented.

W-FSRP 50MW is designed to supply 50MW electrical power using LNG as primary fuel and MDO/HFO as backup, according to Wison.

The FSRP will be of shallow draft barge type moored at a jetty, inter coastal or alongside river bank where the environmental condition is benign.
