Höegh LNG Holdings Ltd has announced that it has taken delivery of its 10th floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) – Höegh Galleon.

According to the statement, this high-specification FSRU has been constructed at Samsung Heavy Industries in South Korea, and has a storage capacity of 170 000 m3 of LNG, as well as a regasification capacity of 750 million standard ft3/d.

This latest vessel features a GTT Mark III membrane containment system, and tri-fuel diesel-electric (TFDE) propulsion. The delivery of the FSRU marks the completion of the company’s current newbuilding programme.

According to the statement, Höegh Galleon has entered into an 18-month interim time charter (TCP) with Cheniere Marketing International LLP, which is scheduled to commence in September 2019.

After the TCP with Cheniere, the FSRU is scheduled to travel to Australia for AIE’s FSRU project in Port Kembla. Höegh LNG claims that it has been selected as the FSRU provider by AIE, and Höegh Galleon will serve the project from the end of 2020.
