Trelleborg supplies solutions to India’s first FSRU LNG terminal

Swedish firm Trelleborg’s marine systems operation has supplied a suite of products to H-Energy’s Floating Storage Re-gasification Unit (FSRU) based LNG terminal at JSW Infrastructure’s Jaigarh Port in Ratnagiri District, Maharashtra.

Developed in accordance with industry leading engineering and safety standards and an annual capacity of 4 MMTPA, H-Energy’s LNG Terminal will offer storage, re-gasification, re-loading, fuel bunkering and truck loading facilities to cater to the growing energy demand of Indian industries. When operational in Q4 2018, the re-gasified LNG will be supplied to customers, through a 60 km tie-in pipeline which will be connected to a national gas grid at Dabhol.

Trelleborg supplied the terminal with its Quick Release Hook Units, Environmental Monitoring System, SmartDock Docking Aid System and Central Integrated Monitoring system.

ManMohan Ahuja, Project Director of H-Energy, commented: “With India being one of the fastest growing countries across the globe, its energy consumption continues to rise at a rapid rate. Therefore, the country’s need for clean, safe and affordable fuel has never been greater. Marking a significant milestone for the development of port-based industries and social infrastructure across India, the country’s first FSRU based LNG terminal at Jaigarh Port aims to deliver exactly that.

“Trelleborg’s unrivalled LNG track record, reputation and technical qualification meant the company was a natural choice to supply the project.”

The project was managed by Trelleborg’s experienced projects team in Melbourne, while engineers from Trelleborg’s engineering and design center of excellence in Ahmedabad, India, carried out the inspection and commissioning of the mooring equipment and attended the successful berthing of the FSRU.

The suite of products supplied by Trelleborg falls under the company’s SmartPort portfolio.
