The scope includes engineering, manufacturing and the supply of a complete compressed air system, consisting of 2 x 44 kW service air compressors and 2 x 44 kW control air compressors. TMC has not disclosed the contract value.
The Managing Director of TMC, Per Kjellin, said: “This is the eighth or ninth FSRU that Hyundai Heavy Industries is building for Höegh LNG, and we have delivered marine compressed air systems to all of them. Repeat orders such as this for high-end vessels is a confirmation that both Höegh and Hyundai Heavy Industries value the reliability a fully marinised compressor technology like ours provides.”
By 2018, the FSRU will have a minimum regasification capacity of 750 million ft3/d. It will be used at an LNG import project in Pakistan, which is being developed by Qatar Petroleum, Total, Mitsubishi, ExxonMobil and Höegh LNG in collaboration with Global Energy Infrastructure Ltd (GEIL).
Kjellin added: “This is a high profile development with a number of reputable industry giants involved, so we are very happy that our compressor technology has been chosen for this FSRU.”
