Wärtsilä has received two contracts from Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) for seawater/propane based regasification modules, which will be installed on floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) vessels owned by Höegh LNG and Gazprom.
Wärtsilä also confirmed that there is an option for a further contract from HHI for another Höegh LNG vessel that is valid until December of this year.
Both regasification systems are modularised for easy installation. They will also be supplied with seawater filter and steam/seawater heating modules. The system to be supplied for Gazprom will be winterised so as to be capable of operating in ambient temperatures as low as -30°C.
Timo Koponen, Vice President, Flow and Gas Solutions, Wärtsilä Marine Solutions, said: “Wärtsilä has a major share of the large energy demand market, which is a direct result of the reliability and efficiency of our systems. The global demand for LNG is rapidly increasing, and Wärtsilä’s experience and expertise throughout the entire LNG value chain is a key factor in the marine sector’s adoption of gas based technologies.”
