PaxOcean Delivers Largest FRSU Built in China

Karunia Dewata

Singapore-based PaxOcean has delivered a 26,000m3 floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) to Indonesia-based Jaya Samudra Karunia (JSK).

Karunia Dewata is the largest FSRU to be built in China and the first to feature Type C cargo tanks. The unit was built at PaxOcean’s Zhoushan Shipyard and classed by Lloyd’s Register’s (LR). The FSRU will be capable of regasifying around 50 million standard cubic feet per day.

The project is a major milestone in the growing gas shipping industry within China and will help increase the development of Indonesia’s gas supply chain, where the unit will be based, according to LR. This is also the first FSRU that PaxOcean has built.

“LR was able to help address this challenge through its connections with equipment manufacturers that it had previously worked with on other projects, to help ensure efficient procedures and deliver a high-quality product on schedule and in accordance with LR’s rule requirements,” the classification society said.

“The design is focused on simple and reliable operation for Indonesian water. By working closely with Lloyd’s Register on classification requirements, and international maritime legislations for vessels carrying liquefied gases in bulk, PaxOcean has successfully designed, built and delivered the largest FSRU with type C cargo tanks in China in our Zhoushan Shipyard,” PaxOcean Engineering Director, Lixin Bian, commented.
