Indonesian-based company Jaya Samudra Karunia (JSK) has taken delivery of the 26,000m3 floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) 'Karunia Dewata', the largest FSRU built in China and the first to feature Type C cargo tanks.
The unit was built at PaxOcean’s Zhoushan Shipyard to Lloyd's Register’s (LR) Rules for the Classification of Ships and Provisional Rules for LNG Ships and Barges Equipped with Regasification Systems.
According to data provided by LR, the unit, to be based in Indonesia, will be capable of regasifying around 50 million standard cubic feet per day, increasing the development of Indonesia’s gas supply chain, while marking, at the same time, a major milestone in the growing gas shipping industry in China.
This is the first FSRU that PaxOcean has built. The design is focused on simple and reliable operation for Indonesian water. By working closely with Lloyd's Register on classification requirements, and international maritime legislations for vessels carrying liquefied gases in bulk, the shipyard has successfully designed, built and delivered the largest FSRU with type C cargo tanks in Chinese Zhoushan Shipyard, commented PaxOcean Engineering Director, Mr. Lixin Bian.
"This is a great achievement for LR, PaxOcean and JSK who have all worked extensively on this technically challenging project...The cooperation between the various LR teams in China, Singapore, Korea and Indonesia all helped ensure a common approach to the project was delivered,"
...said LR’s East China Area Manager, Mr. GZ Wang.
