Wison delivers world’s first barge-based FSRU

Wison Offshore and Marine has completed the final delivery of the world’s first barge-based floating LNG storage and re-gasification unit (FSRU) to Belgian company Exmar.

The FSRU barge, constructed at Wison Nantong’s shipyard, features an LNG storage capacity of 25,000 cubic metres and a re-gasification capacity of 600 million standard cubic feet per day (MMSCFD).

It is the first FSRU project undertaken by a Chinese company on an engineering, procurement and construction basis.

This barge-based FSRU serves as a flexible LNG receiving solution that delivers considerable reductions in capital expenditure and construction time.
