Australian Industrial Energy (AIE) has announced that it has entered into an agreement with Höegh LNG to supply the floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) for the proposed Port Kembla Gas Terminal (PKGT).
The FSRU is a key part of the terminal. It will be moored at Berth 101 in Port Kembla’s inner harbour and accept LNG cargoes from LNG carriers. It will then store the LNG on board and convert it back to gas. This gas will then be transferred onshore and piped into the gas transmission network.
By securing a Höegh vessel, AIE claims that it has ensured the FSRU technology will include the latest safety and environmentally-friendly solutions available worldwide.
