Exmar’s Floating Storage Regasification Unit Arrives in Rotterdam – Video

Exmar’s FRSU “Eemshaven LNG” arrived in the port of Rotterdam recently after a long voyage from Singapore on the 54,013t Boskalis semi submersible heavy lift vessel “Trustee”.

Under control of Wagenborg Agencies the massive float off started 19 June. 18 hours later the FRSU was berthed at the Damen Verolme Rotterdam ship repair yard where it will be prepared for the next voyage to, and operation at, Eemshaven Energy Terminal operated by Nederlandse Gasunie N.V.

At the end of July the FSRU will be towed from Rotterdam to Eemshaven, and moored at the north quay. The towage and mooring will be provided by Wagenborg Towage with professional assistance and various tug boats.

In March 2022, the Dutch government and Gasunie investigated how the import capacity for LNG in the Netherlands could be increased in the short term. This is in view of the geopolitical developments that are currently taking place in Europe and the increased pressure from governments on security of energy supply. The first concrete step is a floating LNG terminal in Eemshaven.

The terminal is expected to be operational by the end of the third quarter of 2022 and will be active for a period of at least 5 years. During the whole port call at Eemshaven the FSRU  again be assisted by Wagenborg Agencies.

The floating terminal will enable an additional 4 to 5 billion cubic meters (in natural gas) to be imported annually.
