Wison gets OK from ABS for new FLNG design

China’s Wison Offshore and Marine has secured approval in principle from classification society ABS for its 3.5 mtpa FLNG design.

ABS previously granted approval to Wison for its standardized 1.3 mtpa and 3 mtpa FLNG designs.

Wison said on Wednesday this new approval is for the extended FEED design on its standardized 3.5 mtpa FLNG.

The Chinese firm said it has developed the new design through the standardization design of topside modules, LNG tank, and hull by applying patented NGL gas processing and feed gas compression technology.

As a consequence, this has “greatly enhanced the flexibility in the applications and operations of FLNG with the high LPG recovery rate,” it said.

“With the efficient SMR technology, an aero–derived gas turbine and a waste heat recovery unit, the liquefaction process has a much-lowered carbon emissions, making the FLNG unit more environmentally friendly,” it said.

Wison said the standardized design reduces CO2 emissions and results in a shortened engineering schedule by about 40 percent.
