Read Time: 2 mins

Wärtsilä has released an online statement to announce it has managed and completed delivery of three large-scale regasification modules for China’s first new built LNG floating storage regasification unit (FSRU). 

It said the vessel, Transgas Power, was built at the Hudong-Zhonghua shipyard in Shanghai for Greek operator Dynagas. Delivery of the modules was completed on 28 March and the FSRU was launched on 30 March.

The technology group designed the modules and sourced the required equipment, including valves and instruments, from suppliers around the world. 

The contract to fabricate the units was awarded to the Cosco shipyard in Qidong, China in September 2018. The work has been managed and coordinated from Wärtsilä’s office in Asker, Norway. 

Wärtsilä reported that the completed products were delivered on time.

Project Manager Geir Kirkemo, Gas Solutions, Wärtsilä Marine, said: “Building Regas modules is something of a jigsaw puzzle. However, thanks to detailed planning, excellent teamwork, open communication, and great cooperation we delivered the project to the client’s full satisfaction and on schedule. 

“We always aim to be the best possible partner to our customers, which apart from offering technical solutions at the highest level, involves listening closely to the client, and striving always to fulfil his expectations.”

WenQing Zang, Manager Supply Department at Hudong-Zhonghua, added: “A big thank you to the Wärtsilä project team for their great efforts and good work that has been performed. You have gone the extra mile for us, and the cooperation has been smooth, allowing us to make a successful delivery of the ship to the owner.” 

The three regasification modules weigh 450 t, 80 t, and 240 t. Wärtsilä said it also supplied related regasification equipment comprising pumps, heat exchangers, valves, and instrumentation for installation in the engine room. 

Elsewhere, a second FSRU being built at the same yard for Dynagas, also featuring Wärtsilä regasification modules, is scheduled for delivery in mid-July 2020.
