Höegh LNG Takes Delivery of FSRU Number Nine

Norway-based company Höegh LNG took delivery of its ninth floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU), Höegh Gannet, on December 6.

Featuring a length of 294 meters and a width of 46 meters, Höegh Gannet has a regasification capacity of 1 bcf per day and a storage capacity of 170,000 cbm of LNG, combined making it the largest FSRU built by capacity.

Constructed by South Korea’s Hyundai Heavy Industries, the unit is equipped with a reinforced GTT Mark III membrane containment system and dual-fuel diesel-electric (DFDE) propulsion.

Höegh Gannet is part of HLNG’s ongoing tender processes for FSRU projects with scheduled start-up in the 2019-21 period.

For the interim period between delivery and start-up under a long-term contract it will serve an LNGC charter with Naturgy, which starts immediately after the positioning voyage from the shipyard.

Höegh LNG said that the interim contract runs for 15 months, under which the new FSRU will earn a fixed dayrate in line with the historical medium term LNGC market.
