BW Tatiana FSRU leaves Singapore to start El Salvador job

The 137,000-cbm BW Tatiana FSRU has left the Keppel Tuas shipyard in Singapore and is en route to the unit’s new home at the Port of Acajutla, El Salvador, according to BW LNG.

When BW Tatiana arrives at its destination later this year, the vessel will be Central America’s first FSRU, representing a key component of the Energía del Pacífico (EDP) LNG-to-power project, BW LNG, a unit of the Singapore-based gas giant BW, said on Friday.

To remind, Keppel announced last year it won a contract from a joint venture consisting of BW’s LNG unit and US-based Invenergy to convert Shell’s LNG carrier Gallina to a FSRU.

The vessel will sit 1.2 km offshore the Port of Acajutla in the department of Sonsonate.

There, it will provide fuel to the integrated project that includes a 378-megawatt natural gas-fired power plant.

The project developed by Inverengy’s Energía del Pacífico will become El Salvador’s first LNG-to-power project.
