South Korea’s shipbuilder Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) has developed a liquefied natural gas (LNG) regasification system for LNG floating storage regasification units (FSRUs).
The system, called S-Regas(GI), utilizes glycol to regasify LNG into gas. It was presented to industry leaders on September 21.
As SHI’s latest regasification achievement, following the direct sea water regasification system, S-Regas(GI) reduces chance of corrosion from traditional method of heating LNG directly with seawater, and is another energy efficient solution saving energy by 5%, the company informed.
“In-house regasification system enables not only cost savings but also improvement in schedule and quality management, further enhancing SHI’s leadership in the LNG-FSRU market,” the builder said.
“SHI will continue to lead market by developing the next generation technologies in the whole LNG value chain. With proven track record and experience we will meet customer’s needs such as saving operating costs of LNG-FSRU and solid performance,” an SHI representative added.
