Höegh LNG welcomes delivery of eighth FSRU

Höegh LNG Holdings has taken delivery of its eighth floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) Höegh Esperanza.

The 170,000-cubic-metre FSRU was constructed at Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) in South Korea and is designed for open, combined and closed loop regasification operation.

Equipped with a GTT Mark III membrane containment system and dual-fuel diesel-electric (DFDE) propulsion, Höegh Esperanza has a maximum regasification throughput of 750 million standard cubic feet per day.

The Bermuda-based company said it was in advanced negotiations for intermediate employment of Höegh Esperanza on a combined FSRU and LNGC contract with seasonal use in FSRU mode until the anticipated start date of its intended long-term FSRU contract in Chile.
