Framo will provide pump systems for a potential Floating Storage Regasification Unit (FSRU) for GasLog.

The Sea Water Lift Pumps order for GasLog, working with Samsung Heavy Industries, was placed shortly after Framo signed a supply agreement for similar pump systems for an FSRU under construction for Høegh LNG at Samsung Heavy Industries’ Geoje Shipyard in South Korea.

Thorbjørn Vågenes, director of oil and gas pumping systems at Framo, said: “This represents acknowledgement of our ultra-compact pump concept that is now gaining a solid position on the FSRU market.”

In comparison with conventional pump systems, Framo's pumps provide significant savings on space and eliminate the need for a separate pump room onboard the ship, said the company.

Delivery is scheduled for August 2018.

The Høegh contract, initially for one unit and including an option for three more, will see Framo install four pumps in Höegh’s vessels, due to be delivered during the period 2019-2021.

FSRUs are used when it is not profitable or practical to develop onshore terminals. By using an on-board regasification unit, liquid gas is converted to gas prior to being brought ashore.
