The project was successfully delivered to GAS-fifteen Ltd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of GasLog LNG Services with a high safety standard, achieving a remarkable feat of 2.9 million man-hours without any recordable injury and loss-time incident. 

As the first FSRU for Greece, the INGS project will become a critical energy gateway, supporting its energy security while advancing the energy transition trajectory of Southeastern Europe. Seatrium’s scope of work for this project includes refurbishment and life extension works, engineering and procurement, fabrication, and installation of a new regasification skid, as well as supporting systems such as boilers, offloading, electrical and automation systems.

When completed, FSRU Alexandroupolis will be deployed in waters some 17 kilometres southwest of the Port of Alexandroupolis, Northern Greece, and will have an overall delivery capacity of approximately 5.5 billion cubic meters per year, with a peak send out of 22 million cubic meters per day. The 155,000-cbm LNG carrier, recently reflagged to the Hellenic Register, is the first FSRU conversion under the Greek Flag for operation in the Thracian Sea. The FSRU will eventually be owned and managed by GASTRADE S.A, a consortium of key players in the wider region’s energy market and will supply the markets of Southeastern European with natural gas. 

Compared to a newbuild FSRU, a converted FSRU has a smaller carbon footprint, is more cost-effective, and is faster-to market.  Seatrium has an extensive track record in the conversion of vessels. In addition to converting the world’s first FSRU in 2008, Seatrium converted the world’s First Floating Production Storage and Offloading vessel (FPSO) in 1981, and the world’s first floating liquefaction vessel (FLNG) in 2017.
