A first floating storage and regasification (FSRU) unit for the MOL-Karpowership joint venture, Karmol, is set to deliver to Senegal early in 2020. The Liberian-flagged Karmol LNGT Powership Africa will soon undertake gas trials off Singapore, following its conversion at Sembcorp Marine, before heading to West Africa.
MOL and Karadeniz-controlled Karpowership formally announced their partnership on LNG-to-floating power in March. The design envisages LNG being delivered to an FSRU that then supplies gas to a Karpowership unit, which sends power ashore.
The MOL-Karpowership partnership is expected to be first to put an LNG-to-floating-power project into operation.
