Germany’s third FSRU terminal starts delivering gas to grid

The 170,000-cbm FSRU Hoegh Gannet, which serves the Elbehafen LNG import terminal in Germany’s Brunsbuettel, has started supplying natural gas to the grid, according to RWE.

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

Three more such terminals are expected to come online in Germany by next winter.

German energy firm RWE, that developed the project with Hoegh LNG, Brunsbuettel Ports, and other partners on behalf of the German government, said in an update that the FSRU began supplying regasified LNG to the grid on March 22.

A spokesman for RWE told LNG Prime last week that the unit will deliver first gas supplies to the connecting pipeline this week.

Prior to this, the FSRU transferred the first ever LPG cargo across its deck to the onshore terminal.

Hoegh Gannet will initially operate at the Brunsbuettel 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.

The FSRU-based terminal received its first LNG tanker on February 14 from UAE’s Adnoc. It is not yet clear when the next cargo would arrive at the unit.

RWE said that it expects the FSRU to be in “regular operation” in April.
