Wison Offshore & Marine said its newly-developed floating storage regasification and power generation barge (W-FSRP) has received Approval in Principle from Bureau Veritas. W-FSRP integrates functions of LNG loading and storage facilities, regasification and power generation. Wison and Bureau Veritas have completed the validation for the specified design of 50MW FSRP this time. As the turnkey service provider for the world’s first FLNG and FSRU barge,Wison built on its rich expertise in floating LNG facilities to provide the LNG industry with innovative solutions, ranging from floating liquefaction unit, shallow water LNG carriers and LNG-Distributor (LNGD), bunkering vessel, etc. Mr. Maarten Spilker, Senior Solutions Director of Wison Offshore & Marine said, “With the interest in small scale LNG-to-power growing, we are developing the building blocks for a lean and integrated supply chain. Combining LNG storage, regasification and power generation on a single facility significantly reduces the cost of infrastructure and makes small scale gas-to-power solutions more attractive". W-FSRP 50MW is designed to supply 50MW electrical power using LNG as primary fuel and MDO/HFO as backup. The FSRP will be of shallow draft barge type moored at a jetty, inter coastal or alongside river bank where the environmental condition is benign. Other key features of W-FSRP are as follows:
