SENER has developed its floating storage and regasification units (FSRU) by combining its knowledge of marine design, on-shore regasification terminals, marine civil engineering (including off shore platforms) and combined cycle power plants - a comprehensive set of skills possessed by very few companies in the world.

FSRUs are mobile plants capable of supplying a market that requires gas as its main source of energy from areas where it is not possible to install on-shore regasification terminals. They therefore allow countries that import gas to diversify their supply sources, essential for maintaining a certain level of independence in the area of energy.

Unidad flotante de almacenamiento y regasificaciónThis type of floating, modular unit drastically cuts down on installation time, making them a rapid response to the growing demand for gas in areas without their own regasification infrastructures. 

SENER’s FSRUs are modular plants with a flexible structure, available in different formats to adapt to clients’ requirements:

  • Off shore/island jetty: Offshore FSRU, placed some distance from the shore but with easy access from land, permanently moored to a dual berth island jetty.
  • Close to shore/jetty: FSRU used in areas with sheltered waters, permanently moored to a jetty connected to the land.
  • Off shore/turret moored: FSRU moored permanently to a turret and an anchor field at the bow.
