Charter fixed for the world’s largest FSRU

The world’s largest FSRU – due to be delivered in a couple of months – has found a charter in Turkey.

The 263,000 cu m FSRU will deliver to owner Mitsui OSK Lines (MOL) in October and will then go on a three-year charter to Turkey’s state-run energy firm Botas.

The FSRU  has been one of the most high profile vessels under construction at South Korea’s Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering.

MOL already has a business relationship with Botas. Another FSRU in which it has a 48.5% stake in started operating for the Turkish company in December last year.
