[Watch] Installing Storm Mooring System To an LNG FSU


The Republic of Malta, located in the Mediterranean Sea, has traditionally been reliant on diesel and heavy fuel oil for its power generation; these facilities no longer satisfy present-day European environmental legislation and provide power in an inefficient and expensive manner. To address the environmental requirements and to create a more efficient and better-value power supply, a liquid-natural-gas-to-power project was developed by ElectroGas Malta Consortium (EGM) as a significant contribution to Malta’s future energy strategy.

The project consists of the construction of a new 205MW Siemens combined cycle gas turbine power station, known as Delimara 4. Another part of the project is the conversion of an LNG tanker into a floating storage unit FSU to be permanently berthed near shore, close to the fishing village of Marsaxlokk. The FSU delivers liquefied natural gas (LNG) via a newly constructed jetty, for onshore regasification. As part of this project, EGM needed a Storm Mooring System to keep the FSU safe and secure in the event of a heavy storm.
