MOL bags FSRU project in Indonesia

Japan’s Mitsui OSK Lines (MOL) has landed deals to participate in the construction, ownership and operation of a FSRU for Indonesia’s Jawa 1 Gas-Fired Project.

The FSRU, located in Cilamaya in West Java, will feature optimal tank capacity and regasification capacity to tailor to a gas-fired power plant’s generation capacity of 1,760 megawatts.

“Through this project, MOL will help ensure a stable supply of electricity in Indonesia, based on its accumulated achievements and experience in LNG carrier and FSRU operation, and promote the FSRU business, which meets diverse customer needs for LNG procurement,” MOL stated.

The FSRU will be built at South Korea’s Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) and will come on stream in December 2021.

The power plant and the FSRU will be maintained and operated in an integrated manner and the electricity produced by these facilities will be sold to Indonesian state-owned electricity utility PT PLN (Persero) for over 25 years.

The MOL statement said this is Asia’s first such gas-to-power project using FSRU, electric generation and gas related facilities developed in an integrated manner.
