ABS has announced that it provided safety guidance and advice on regulatory compliance throughout the development of a new floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) design concept by Hanjin Heavy Industries and Construction Co. Ltd (HHIC).

Patrick Janssens, ABS Vice President for Global Gas Solutions, said: “Industry is exploring options for getting gas to new and expanding markets.

“As a technology leader, ABS is working with innovators who are looking more closely at FSRUs as a flexible and efficient gas delivery solution.”

The smaller 25 000 m3 concept involves four Type C cargo tanks in order to simplify the gas transfer to the storage terminal. In its review of the design, ABS applied its latest safety standards and confirmed that the conceptual design meets applicable class requirements.

Moon-Tae Yoon, HHIC Executive Managing Director, said: “Partnering with ABS and leveraging its knowledge and experience in LNG regasification helped us prove the feasibility of the concept and better understand the safety implications throughout development of the design.

“This project is an important milestone for HHIC, and this type of asset will serve a critical need in markets that are looking for efficient ways to get gas.”
