Höegh LNG said it has taken delivery of Höegh Gannet, its ninth floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU).

Höegh Gannet has a regasification capacity of 1 billion cubic feet (Bcf) per day and storage capacity of 170,000-cbm, which combined makes it the largest FSRU built by capacity, Norway’s FSRU giant Höegh LNG said.

The unit has been constructed by Hyundai Heavy Industries in South Korea and is equipped with a reinforced GTT Mark III membrane containment system and dual-fuel diesel-electric (DFDE) propulsion.

Höegh Gannet is part of HLNG’s ongoing tender processes for FSRU projects with scheduled start-up in the 2019-21 period.

For the interim period between delivery and start-up under a long-term contract, it will serve 15-month LNGC charter with Naturgy, which starts immediately after the positioning voyage from the shipyard.
