N-KOM Wraps Up Its 1st FSRU Project

Qatar-based Nakilat-Keppel Offshore & Marine (N-KOM) shipyard has completed its first floating storage regasification unit (FSRU) project for the FSRU Excelerate owned by Excelerate Energy.

As informed, the FSRU underwent routine drydocking and repairs, in addition to modifications and retrofitting of several new systems, including the installation of a ballast water treatment system (BWTS).

The two-month project involving the 138,074 cbm Excelerate was carried out at the Erhama Bin Jaber Al Jalahma Shipyard.

The 2006-built vessel is now ready to sail to Bangladesh to join Excelerate’s FSRU Excellence in the Bay of Bengal and serve as the country’s second LNG import terminal, according to N-KOM.

In August 2018, Bangladesh’s first liquefied natural gas (LNG) import facility, Moheshkhali Floating LNG (MLNG) terminal, located offshore Moheshkhali Island, officially commenced operations. The terminal includes the provision of Excelerate’s Excellence and Excelerate.

To date, N-KOM, a joint venture between Nakilat and Keppel, has completed more than 190 LNG carrier drydocking and repairs as well as seven BWTS installations.
