Classification society DNV GL has granted an Approval in Principle (AiP) to Norway’s Dreifa Energy for its floating regasification unit concept (the Dreifa FRU).
The Dreifa FRU consists of a regasification plant and associated utility systems located on the deck of a platform supply vessel. The unit operates in combination with an LNG carrier acting as a floating storage unit (FSU).
The company informed that the AiP is based on DNV GL’s examination of the basic engineering package developed by Dreifa Energy throughout the second and third quarters of 2017.
In addition to confirming the design’s compliance with the rules of the society at current stage of engineering, the AiP “provides clarity on the regulatory framework and classification procedure towards final approval.”
“This is an important step forward in Dreifa Energy’s efforts to be prepared to enter into contracts for equipment and conversion,” the company said.
