AqualisBraemar’s ports & harbour unit has completed its two-year involvement with the development of Sub-Saharan Africa’s first floating LNG import terminal.
The LNG terminal, which is in Tema, Ghana, recently received a floating regasification unit (FRU) that will shortly enable it to offer services to LNG carriers.
Once operational, the FRU will allow the Tema LNG facility to receive, re-gasify, store and deliver roughly 1.7 million tpy of LNG – equivalent to 30 percent of Ghana’s general capacity.
Tema LNG Terminal Co, (TLTC), was established by Helios Investment Partners in November 2017 to develop, construct and operate the Tema LNG facility at the Port of Tema. It recently took delivery of the FRU, built by Jiangnan Shipbuilding.
AqualisBraemar has been involved in marine design consultancy support throughout the project, including various mooring designs for FRU, floating storage unit (FSU), liquefied natural gas carrier (LNGC) and ship manoeuvering simulations. AqualisBraemar worked for Gasfin Development and also alongside civil consultancy firm AECOM.
AqualisBraemar’s master mariners and naval architects were involved in the project from conception to execution, helping clients navigate various challenges by providing creative and optimum solutions.
“We are proud and happy to be involved in the development of this ground-breaking, cost-effective LNG solution, which will provide energy to millions of Ghanaians. We are very thankful to Gasfin Development and AECOM for enabling us to share this exciting journey with them,” said Sanjeev Reddy, technical manager, ports & harbours, AqualisBraemar.
