Samsung Heavy Industries develops in-house LNG-FSRU regasification system

Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) has developed an in-house LNG regasification system for LNG-FSRU, claiming that the system is able to minimise corrosion from sea water and reap higher energy effciency.

The South Korean shipbuilder named the system S-Regas(GI), which utilises glycol to regasify LNG into gas. SHI said the S-Regas(GI) reduces chance of corrosion from traditional method of heating LNG directly with seawater and achieves 5% energy saving.

SHI added that in-house regasification system enables not only cost savings but also improvement in safety, schedule and quality management.

“SHI will continue to lead market by developing the next generation technologies in the whole LNG value chain. With proven track record and experience we will meet customer's needs such as saving operating costs of LNG-FSRU and solid performance,” a SHI representative said.
