South Korean shipyard Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) has won a $221m order to build a LNG-FSRU from a consortium comprising Japanese firms Marubeni and Sojitz and Indonesia’s Pertamina.
The 170,000 cu m LNG-FSRU, which will be equipped with Samsung’s newly developed in-house regasification system, will be deployed in Indonesia.
In January, Marubeni, Sojitz, and Pertamina entered into a long-term power purchase agreement with Indonesian state-owned electricity utility PT PLN for the Jawa-1 gas-fired power plant project. The project calls for Sojitz, Pertamina, and Marubeni to construct, own, and operate a gas-fired power plant and a FSRU.
“Successful showcase of the In-house regasification system led to an actual application in the new LNG-FSRU in just a month. SHI will continue to lead LNG-FSRU market with unyielding efforts to meet customer needs such as low operating costs and reliable operability” said a spokesperson from SHI.
