Wilhelmsen to manage Turkey’s new FSRU

Botas, a unit of Turkish Petroleum Corp, has appointed Wilhelmsen Ship Management as the manager of the first Turkish-flagged FSRU.

Singapore-based Wilhelmsen Ship Management, a Wilhelmsen group company, said in a statement on Tuesday it took over management of the Ertugrul Gazi FSRU.

The vessel arrived in the southern province of Hatay to start serving the Dortyol facility in April after departing Hyundai Heavy’s yard in South Korea in the month before.

“It is an honour for us to be entrusted for the management of Turkey’s first Turkish-flagged FSRU. We would like to thank Botas for giving us this opportunity, we will strive to deliver the best ship management experience to our new client,” Carl Schou, CEO and president of Wilhelmsen Ship Management, said.

The FSRU has a regasification capacity of 28 million cubic meters per day and a storage capacity of 170,000 cubic meters. It is 295 meters long and 46 meters wide.

In addition to the brand new Ertugrul Gazi, there is also one other FSRU operating in Turkey at the privately-owned Etki terminal in Aliaga, Izmir. The 170,000-cbm Turquoise belongs to Pardus Energy.

Turkey also plans to add another FSRU in Saros Bay, north of the Gallipoli Peninsula.
