LR announced during a presentation at Gastech – the leading exhibition and conference for the global gas, LNG and energy industries held 17-20 September in Barcelona, Spain – an AiP to Wison with respect to their 300MW FSRP concept design, LR said in its press release.
FSRPs are a relatively new design concept and the market is expected to expand in coming years. Essentially, a floating LNG power plant, the FSRP receives LNG from ships and stores it within its own tanks below deck, before regasifying the LNG and using it to fuel an onboard power plant. In this new design the power plant has a capacity of 300MW.
LR, Wison and Gaztransport & Technigaz (GTT) are working together in developing this 300MW FSRP unit. It will be designed, constructed and built to supply 300MW electrical power, using LNG as fuel. GTT is an engineering company designing cryogenic membrane containment systems dedicated to the transport and storage of liquefied gases, and in particular LNG. The FSRP will be barge-type moored at a jetty or near-shore.
A Joint Development Project (JDP) agreement between LR, Wison and GTT has also been signed today. This includes the undertaking of further work for example, more detailed design reviews, support for the preparation of Wison to build GTT membrane type LNG tanks as well as possible additional items like risk assessments.
