Hamworthy Oil and Gas Systems secured a contract to supply its liquefied natural gas (LNG) regasification technology for the third Höegh LNG floating, storage and regasification unit (FSRU) under construction at Hyundai Heavy Industries.

Working together with Sinopacific Offshore and Engineering (SOE), Wärtsilä Hamworthy will design and supply the system concept whilst the key equipment and fabrication will be supplied by SOE.

This partnership agreement follows on from the contract to supply a propane-seawater regasification system for the first two vessels with a capacity of 170,000 cu m signed in November last year.

Reidar Strande, LNG business unit director, Hamworthy, commented, “This contract for Höegh LNG follows on from the joint project with SOE in supplying our regasification module for the converted Golar Khannur. The module concept was a fast-track project allowing the regasification system to be almost complete before lifting onboard the vessel, with very few interfaces. Delivery of this equipment took place in November 2011.”
