MOL seals Hong Kong FSRU contract

Japan’s Mitsui OSK Lines (MOL) has fixed a long-term charter contract with Hong Kong LNG Terminal for the 263,000 cu m MOL FSRU Challenger, the world’s largest FSRU.

The FSRU was delivered from Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering two years ago and is currently employed on a mid-term charter for a project in Turkey.

The Hong Kong Offshore LNG Terminal will be located at the southern waters of Hong Kong and to the east of the Soko Islands. The FSRU will be delivered to Hong Kong to begin testing and commissioning when the project finishes construction, currently expected in 2021. The FSRU will supply gas to two destinations in Hong Kong, the Black Point Power Station located in the New Territories and Lamma Power Station located at Lamma Island.
