FueLNG helps in commissioning of Seatrium’s floating lab

Singapore’s FueLNG, a joint venture consisting of Shell and Seatrium, has completed the gassing up and cooling down and LNG bunkering of Seatrium’s floating living lab at its Benoi yard.

FueLNG said in a social media post on Monday it completed the operation with the 18,000-cbm bunkering vessel, FueLNG Venosa, marking a “significant milestone” in the lab’s commissioning.

The floating lab, a first of its kind in Singapore, “shall play a pivotal role in the trial of many new technologies, paving the way for a more sustainable and innovative power production, Harbercraft electrification, and low carbon fueling for vessels,” FueLNG said.

The JV did not provide further information.

Seatrium said in October last year that southeast Asia’s first floating and stacked energy storage system (ESS) had been deployed at its lab.

The group, previously known as Sembcorp Marine and renamed as Seatrium following its merger with Keppel Offshore & Marine, said at the time that the system would start operations by the first quarter of 2024.

The floating ESS at Seatrium’s FLL has a maximum storage capacity of 7.5 megawatt hour (MWh) and can meet the electricity needs of more than 600 four-room HDB households for one day, in a single discharge, according to Seatrium.
