Nakilat-Keppel Offshore & Marine (N-KOM) has received the Exquisite floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) at the Erhama Bin Jaber Al Jalahma Shipyard. The FSRU owned by Excelerate Energy will undergo drydocking, maintenance and upgrades at the facility. It is the first FSRU it welcomes at the shipyard.

During its drydocking, the FSRU will undergo several modifications and retrofitting of new systems, including the installation of a ballast water treatment system (BWTS). To date, N-KOM has completed six such BWTS installations for various types of vessels such as LNG and LPG vessels as well as very large crude carriers (VLCCs).

Nakilat Chief Executive Officer Abdullah Al Sulaiti said: “We are proud to be entrusted with this repair project from our partner Excelerate Energy, which is made even more significant since it is the first FSRU to be repaired at our shipyard. This goes to show the remarkable progress the shipyard has made since it first began operations in 2011 to where it is today – a centre of excellence for marine repairs and offshore fabrication that has safely and reliably delivered more than 880 projects to clients worldwide.”
