March 3 (LNGJ) – Bureau Veritas, the French classification society, has granted approval for the design of a “cryo-powered regas” system for an LNG floating storage and regasification unit. The system recovers cold energy during regasification and uses it for power generation. The approval was issued to both Japanese shipping company Mitsui Osk Lines (MOL) and Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering.
The system is based on the Organic Rankine Cycle, a proven technology used in multiple onshore LNG terminals for decades. However, Bureau Veritas pointed out that this would be the first time the system has been developed for use in a floating terminal. MOL and DSME plan to test the technology in a small-scale pilot facility early in 2021 and be able to provide the technology to customers in future FSRU projects.Previous:
