Höegh LNG Holdings Ltd. has taken delivery of the Höegh Gannet, its ninth floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU).
The Höegh Gannet has a regasification capacity of 1 billion ft3/d and storage capacity of 170 000 m3 of LNG, combined making it the largest FSRU built by capacity. The unit has been constructed by Hyundai Heavy Industries in South Korea and is equipped with a reinforced GTT Mark III membrane containment system and dual-fuel diesel-electric (DFDE) propulsion.
The Höegh Gannet is part of HLNG’s ongoing tender processes for FSRU projects with scheduled start-up in the 2019 – 2021 period. For the interim period between delivery and start-up under a long-term contract it will serve an LNG carrier charter with Naturgy, which starts immediately after the positioning voyage from the shipyard. This interim contract runs for 15 months, under which the Höegh Gannet will earn a fixed dayrate in line with the historical medium-term LNG carrier market.
