Framo delivers pumping systems to Höegh LNG
Framo has signed a contract with Höegh LNG for the delivery of pumping systems to their new Floating Storage Regasification Unit (FSRU). The contract is for one unit, with option for three more units which are currently being built at Samsung Heavy Industries in Korea.
An FSRU is a floating processing and terminal facility used when it is not profitable, or for other reasons not practical, to develop onshore terminals. By using an on-board regasification unit, the liquid gas carried by the LNG tanker is converted to gas prior to being brought ashore. This process requires the gas to be heated, and for this heating large quantities of seawater have to be pumped from the ocean. Framo is to install four pumps in each of the vessels which are due to be delivered during the period 2019 to 2021.
