Wison unveils floating power designs

Shanghai-based Wison Offshore & Marine has unveiled a range of solutions for floating power supply. With a design philosophy of “plug-in power”, all products which are named W-FSRP series (Wison-Floating Storage Regasification and Power generation) feature integrated functions of LNG loading and storage facilities, regasification and power generation. The smallest unit starts at 10MW capacity, while the largest accommodates an 800MW power plant.

Wison FSRP designs integrate storage, regasification and power generation in a single unit.
“Compared with land-based solutions, the floating power supply is advantageous in fast-track implementation and attractive pricing with flexibility, as the construction work completed in fabrication yards normally results in efficiency and cost reduction,” the company said in a release.

“We can see increasing demand from the regions in Southeast Asia, West Africa, Caribbean areas, the west coast of India, where electricity demand is growing and onshore solutions may not be commercially feasible or preferable,” said Ying Cui, CEO of Wison Offshore & Marine.

Wison was the turnkey service provider for the world’s first FLNG and first China-made FSRU. It owns and operates two shipyards located in Nantong and Zhoushan.
