Framo to deliver pumping systems for new Höegh FSRU

Framo has announced that it has signed an agreement to deliver pumping systems for Höegh LNG’s new floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU).

The contract is for one unit, with the option for three further units, which are currently under construction in South Korea by Samsung Heavy Industries. Framo will install four pumps in each of the vessels, which are scheduled for delivery from 2019 to 2021.

Thorbjørn Vågenes, Director, Oil & Gas Pumping Systems at Framo AS, said: “Global demand for energy is on the rise, but in many areas the necessary infrastructure is not in place. FSRU is a highly versatile alternative as a vessel can be moored at any quay and operate as a terminal. Furthermore, the investment costs are significantly lower than for onshore developments."

The pumping systems that Framo will provide are based on recognised Framo technology that has previously been used in offshore operations for many years. For instance, a similar solution was delivered to Shell’s Prelude floating LNG (FLNG) unit. The system that will be used on the Höegh FSRU will eliminate the need for a separate pump room on a vessel where space is often limited.

Vågenes added: “We are using recognised and well-proven Framo technology in a new market where there has been a significant rise in demand the past few years.”
