Wison completes large SPB LNG tank

China’s Wison Offshore & Marine has completed the final assembly of what it says is the world’s largest self-supporting prismatic shape IMO type B LNG tank.

“With storage capacity of 47,000 cbm, this tank stands as the largest single product ever designed and built using SPB technology since its debut in the 1980s,” according to Wison.

The firm also said that this accomplishment hits a record of the first successful engineering application of the technology in China.

Wison said that it will install this SPB tank into its large floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) facility under construction.

The Chinese firm won a contract from Italy’s Eni in December last year to build a 380 meters long 2.4 mtpa FLNG and officially started work on the project on January 17, 2023.

It will be able to store over 180,000 cubic meters of LNG.

The FLNG will serve Eni’s Congo project which will reach an overall LNG production capacity of 3 million tons per year, or about 4.5 billion cubic meters/year, from 2025.
