Germany’s third FSRU terminal to receive second LNG tanker next week

The 170,000-cbm FSRU Hoegh Gannet, which serves the Elbehafen LNG import terminal in Germany’s Brunsbüttel, is expected to receive its second LNG tanker next week, according to shipping data.

This is Germany’s third FSRU-based facility after the launch of terminals in Wilhelmshaven and Lubmin.

In addition, three more such terminals are expected to come online in Germany by next winter.

German energy firm RWE, which developed the project with Hoegh LNG, Brunsbüttel Ports, and other partners on behalf of the German government, said last month that the FSRU began supplying regasified LNG to the grid on March 22.

The FSRU-based terminal received its first LNG tanker on February 14 from UAE’s Adnoc.

According to its AIS data provided by VesselsValue, the 2021-built 174,000-cbm, Gui Ying, is expected to arrive in Brunsbüttel on April 10.

The vessel may change its destination in the meantime.

This LNG carrier, owned by CSSC Shipping and chartered by trader Gunvor, previously picked up a cargo at the Cove Point LNG export plant in the US, the data shows.

RWE said in March that it expected to launch “regular operations” at the FSRU-based facility in April.

LNG Prime contacted RWE for a comment regarding the second shipment, but we did not receive a reply by the time this article was published.

Hoegh Gannet, which the German government took on charter from Hoegh LNG, will initially operate at the Brunsbüttel Port’s existing dangerous goods berth.

From the end of 2023, the FSRU will work from a new jetty to the west of the Elbehafen and Brunsbuettel Ports will build and operate this jetty.
