Nobu Su reveals ship conversion plans

Taipei: Despite travails in court cases elsewhere Nobu Su has announced plans to convert up to five VLCCs and VLOOs into FPSOs and FLNGs.

Su’s company Bluesky FLNG claims it will engage a Chinese yard for the conversion work, according to a release yesterday.

Su said, “While the patented and patenting technologies are highly useful for adding value to VLCC/ VLOO, I believe that both technologies will also help bolster China’s shipbuilding expertise. Moreover, our target is to offer the FLNG platform to the US, and Africa, specifically natural gas companies that require FLNG liquefaction capabilities, which we believe will improve the production efficiency of carriers and benefit the industry as a whole.”  [15/05/14]
