Hoegh Gallant FSRU ready to start Jamaica job

The 170,000-cbm Hoegh Gallant FSRU is ready to start serving New Fortress Energy’s offshore Old Harbour facility in Jamaica, following the completion of modification work at the Damen yard in Curacao.

Floating player Hoegh LNG said on Wednesday that the 2014-built vessel had departed from Damen Shiprepair Curaoao after 18 days of refurbishment and modification work.

Hoegh LNG added the yard had completed the vessel in accordance with the original schedule, but it did not provide any additional information.

Hoegh Gallant FSRU is on its way to Jamaica where it should arrive in Port Esquivel on Friday, its AIS data shows.

New York-listed Hoegh LNG Partners, a limited partnership formed by Hoegh LNG, said in September it had chartered the FSRU for ten years to Wes Edens-led New Fortress Energy.

The partnership said then the new charter would start in the fourth quarter of this year.

Launched in 2019 and located 3.6 miles out at sea, NFE’s offshore Old Harbour facility features an FSRU and underwater natural gas pipeline.

The 125,000-cbm converted FSRU Golar Freeze currently serves the facility, according to NFE.

It supplies regasified LNG to Jamaica Public Service Company’s 190-megawatt power plant in Old Harbour in Port Esquivel and NFE’s 150-megawatt co-generation power plant at Jamalco in Clarendon.
