In mid-November 2018 PaxOcean delivered the 26,000m3 floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) Karunia Dewata to Indonesia-based Jaya Samudra Karunia (JSK).

Karunia Dewata is the largest FSRU to be built in China and the first to feature Type C cargo tanks.

The unit was built at PaxOcean’s Zhoushan Shipyard to Lloyd’s Register’s (LR) Rules for the Classification of Ships and Provisional Rules for LNG Ships and Barges Equipped with Regasification Systems.

The project is a major milestone in the growing gas shipping industry within China and will help increase the development of Indonesia’s gas supply chain, where the unit will be based. It will be capable of regasifying around 50 million standard cubic feet per day.

Leveraging its global reach and gas shipping expertise, LR provided bespoke support to the project through a range of services.

LR has been the leading technical service provider to the gas supply chain for over 50 years and has a wealth of experience in large gas projects. LR teams in Singapore, Korea, Indonesia and China all contributed to the success of this complex project.

This is the first FSRU that PaxOcean have built – LR was able to help address this challenge through its connections with equipment manufacturers that it had previously worked with on other projects, to help ensure efficient procedures and deliver a high-quality product on schedule and in accordance with LR’s rule requirements.
