Wartsila to supply reliquefaction system for Energos LNG carrier

Finland’s Wartsila has secured a contract to supply a reliquefaction system for a retrofit project on an Energos Infrastructure-owned LNG carrier converted to operate as a floating storage unit.

The vessel in question is the 2006-built 145,700-cbm, Energos Grand, chartered by US LNG player New Fortress Energy.

NFE and compatriot asset manager Apollo completed the formation of their joint venture Energos Infrastructure in August last year.

The JV, 80 percent owned by Apollo, has 11 vessels in its fleet, including FSRUs, LNG carriers, and FSUs.

Wartsila said in a statement on Monday that the it has booked the order for Energos Grand in March this year.

The reliquefication system will allow the boil-off-gas (BOG) from LNG onboard to be reliquefied and returned to the cargo tanks rather than being wasted.

Also, the solution contributes to a significant reduction in emissions and creates cost savings, as well as optimizing the LNG cargo level, according to Wartsila.

Wartsila did not provide the price tag of the contract.

The tech firm expects to deliver the equipment during the second half of 2024.

Energos Grand’s AIS data showed on Monday that the vessel is currently located offshore La Paz.

In July 2021, NFE launched a new LNG import terminal in the port of Pichilingue, La Paz, in Mexico’s Baja California Sur state.

The terminal features NFE’s proprietary ISOFlex system, which allows larger LNG carrier vessels to transload LNG into ISO storage containers on offshore support vessels (OSVs) with a specialized manifold.
