Germany’s HEH says Dynagas FSRU arrives in Bremerhaven

The 170,000-cbm FSRU Transgas Force, owned by Dynagas, has arrived in Germany’s Bremerhaven where it will be prepared for its upcoming job in Stade, according to Hanseatic Energy Hub.

HEH announced the arrival of the FSRU in a social media post on Monday, but it did not provide any additional information.

According to its AIS data, the FSRU arrived at the Lloyd Werft yard in Bremerhaven on July 27.

Local media reports suggest that the 2021-built FSRU would stay there until mid-October.

Chartered by the German government, the FSRU is an “important building block” for ensuring energy supplies in Germany in the short term, HEH said.

“In parallel, we will be pushing full steam ahead with the expansion of our land-based zero-emission terminal, which will replace the FSRU from 2027,” it said.

In January, work started on the new LNG jetty in Stade which is expected to welcome the FSRU later this year.

German port firm Niedersachsen Ports (NPorts) is responsible for planning and implementation of the new jetty.

This FSRU-based LNG terminal will have a capacity of some 5 bcm per year.

The German government, helped by Uniper, RWE, and a consortium of Engie, TES, and E.ON chartered in total five FSRUs.

Uniper and RWE installed Hoegh LNG’s FSRUs in Wilhelmshaven and Brunsbüttel, while Excelerate Energy’s FSRU Excelsior will serve the second project in Wilhelmshaven.

Private LNG firm Deutsche ReGas, which officially launched its Lubmin FSRU-based LNG import terminal in January, plans to install the 174,000-cbm FSRU Transgas Power, also owned by Dynagas, to serve the LNG import terminal in the port of Mukran.

Onshore LNG terminal

Spanish LNG terminal operator Enagas recently agreed to buy a 10 percent stake in HEH, the developer of the planned Stade LNG import terminal near Hamburg.

Besides the stake sale, HEH has chosen the Spanish transmission system operator as its industrial partner for the operation of the LNG terminal at the Stade industrial park.

HEH is a consortium consisting of Fluxys, Dow, Partners Group, and Buss Group.

Belgium’s Fluxys will sell its shares due to a “strategic refocusing”.

In April, HEH awarded the engineering, procurement and construction deal for its Stade LNG import terminal near Hamburg to a consortium led by Spain’s Tecnicas Reunidas.

The project is worth about 1 billion euros ($1.09 billion).

HEH is targeting FID for the terminal with a regasification capacity of 13.3 Bcm per year in 2023 and to begin operations in 2027.

As per capacity bookings, Energy firm EnBW doubled its capacity booking in April to 6 bcm per year at the planned LNG import terminal.

Besides EnBW, Germany’s SEFE plans to import at least 4 bcm per year via the terminal.
