Wärtsilä has been contracted to supply the re-gasification system for an FSRU (Floating, Storage, Re-gasification Unit) conversion project that Höegh LNG plans to carry out on a modern LNG vessel. The contract was signed in August.

The Wärtsilä re-gasification system to be supplied will feature regas technology using water glycol as the intermediate medium instead of propane. This provides a more compact solution being some 15 percent smaller and lighter than the propane based system.

"We have enjoyed a good relationship with the customer for many years and have supplied them with a number of regas systems. Repeat orders are the most positive endorsement of customer satisfaction, and we are delighted to again be the supplier of choice for this conversion project," says Timo Koponen, Vice President, Flow & Gas Solutions, Wärtsilä Marine Solutions.

"Having used Wärtsilä's systems for previous FSRUs, we are familiar with their expertise in this field and we did not hesitate in accepting their competitive bid and selecting their system for this FSRU conversion vessel," says Sveinung J.S. Støhle, CEO and President of Höegh LNG.

The Wärtsilä scope of supply for this project comprises the water glycol re-gasification module, the water glycol /seawater heaters and pumps. Delivery is scheduled for autumn 2017.

Wärtsilä has previously supplied eight re-gasification systems to Höegh LNG.
