Wison Offshore & Marine reports that it successfully completed the installation of the three LNG storage tanks into the hull of the Caribbean FLNG project, considered a significant  milestone in the delivery of the world’s first floating LNG production unit.

With this major activity completed, the pathway is clear for installing the barge deck and topsides on the project.

The Caribbean FLNG project, being supplied to EXMAR by Wison Offshore & Marine under an EPCIC contract, will be installed off the coast of Colombia.  The project started fabrication at the end of 2012 and is planned to be in operation the first quarter of 2015 as the world’s-first FLNG vessel. The project is progressing on schedule, and expected to be mechanically complete in April 2014 with sail away in the fall of 2014. 

Supplied by TGE, the combined capacity of the three LNG storage tanks is 16,100 cubic meters, with a net weight of around 395 tons each. The complete tanks were hoisted by two 400-ton goliath gantry cranes in WOM’s drydock.
