Samsung Heavy independently develops core equipment for FSRU

Samsung Heavy Industries has independently developed LNG re-gasification system, a key equipment for LNG-FSRU (floating storage re-gasification unit), relying on its own developed-technology.

Samsung said that it had presented a briefing session, demonstrating the highlights of ‘S-Regas(GI)’ on last Sept 21 to its customers. The session was attended by about 40 officials from 19 shipping players, domestic and overseas, including FSRU players such as Golar LNG, Hoeg LNG, Gaslog.

S-Regas(GI) is a system to re-gasify LNG by mixing it with Glycol. Prior to this development, Samsung has developed the system as the follow-up of direct sea-water re-gasification system. S-Regas(GI) is an eco-friendly technology causing less corrosion compared with the earlier method of LNG re-gasification by heating sea-water, and saving more than 5% energy in re-gasification.

Notably, Samsung’s successful localization in manufacturing S-Regas(GI) not only offers cost saving but also better delivery and better quality control, which are expected to enable Samsung to upgrade its competition in LNG-FSRU markets.

Core parts required for S-Regas(GI) is set to be locally made for local supply, strengthening the win-win cooperation with domestic machinery manufacturers, it is projected.

A Samsung official said: “Our independent development of S-Regas(GI) is expected to upgrade safety in LNG-FSRU and its performance. Our technological development covering all gas supply network to meet customers’ needs of operation cost saving and guaranteeing utilization ratio based on accumulated experience and knowhow will lead the markets ahead.”
