Germany’s construction engineering company TGE Marine Gas Engineering has inked a supply contract for one of the world’s first small-scale floating storage and regasification units (FSRUs).

Under the deal signed with Chinese Jiangnan Shipyard at the end of July, TGE Marine will design and supply the cargo handling system and tank material for the unit.

The 28,000 cbm capacity barge type FRU was ordered by Tema LNG, which is controlled by Helios Investment from London, and will be located in Ghana.

In close cooperation with the owner and the shipyard, TGE Marine has participated in the development of the new design working in parallel with a larger floating storage unit (FSU). The barge is a 2-tank version with an individual cylindrical tank size of 14,000 cbm. Five modular compact regas skids will provide a peak send-out rate of 335 t/h or approx. 2,9 million tons per year at a send-out pressure of 65 bar, as explained by TGE Marine.

The company has been working on several concepts for small-scale LNG regas units for island supply or areas which have no pipeline access.

“With more than 20 large LNG-FSRU’s in service, TGE considers this order as a breakthrough for the small-scale LNG market especially for the supply of natural gas for power plants,” TGE Marine said in a statement.

Earlier this month, Tema LNG Terminal Company signed an agreement with China Harbour Engineering Company (CHEC) for the construction of an LNG terminal in Tema. The LNG terminal, planned to be completed in 18 months, will be Sub-Saharan Africa’s first regasification terminal.
