Wärtsilä secures LNG regasification orders
Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) has ordered Wärtsilä regasification modules for two floating storage and regasification units (FSRUs) under construction for Hoegh LNG and Gazprom.
The modules, designed for easy installation, are supplied with seawater filters and steam/seawater heating modules. The Gazprom system will be winterised, capable of operating in ambient temperatures of -30°C. Printed circuit heat exchangers and plate heat exchangers save space and weight, while the use of seawater for heating results in lower CO2 emissions than steam heating.
Wärtsilä, which claims to hold a major share in the ‘large energy demand market’, has also delivered modularised regasification plants for jetty installations. These facilitate a much shorter construction time than conventional land-based LNG regasification terminal projects.
"The global demand for LNG is rapidly increasing, and Wärtsilä's experience and expertise throughout the entire LNG value chain is a key factor in the marine sector's adoption of gas based technologies," says Timo Koponen, vice president, flow and gas solutions, Wärtsilä Marine Solutions.
