Our LNG regasification solutions represent the very latest in gas technology, and comply with environmental and safety regulations to meet the ever increasing demand for natural gas.
Wärtsilä Oil & Gas Systems is an established leading supplier of technology and topsides for floating LNG regasification facilities. Our portfolio of LNG regasification technologies represents an industry benchmark in terms of energy efficiency, robustness, and operational flexibility. It is available either as multi-skid deliveries, or as complete turnkey and single-lift topside modules.
The first FSRU to utilize a shipboard Wärtsila Hamworthy LNG regasification plant designed and built by Wärtsilä Oil & Gas Systems (formerly Hamworthy Oil & Gas Systems), was the ‘Golar Winter’ on charter to Petrobras. Since then we have delivered and put into operation numerous floating LNG regasification plants based on either closed loop regasification technology, using steam with water/glycol as the intermediate heating medium, or open loop regasification technology using sea water with propane as the intermediate heating medium. We have also delivered modularized regasification plants for jetty installations. These facilitate a much shorter construction time compared to the traditional land based LNG regasification terminal project.
Our extensive LNG technology experience and know-how forms the basis of our leading position in the floating LNG regasification market. Time and again we have proven our ability to deliver fast track and high quality LNG projects, and to be fully involved throughout the entire project’s lifecycle, from the pre-contract study phase to the engineering, construction, installation, start-up and operations. We offer a complete range of services for maintenance, training and operational support.
