Trelleborg Marine Systems has been commissioned to supply a suite of LNG solutions to India’s first floating re-gasification unit (FSRU) LNG terminal.

When completed, the terminal, located at JSW Infrastructure’s Jaigarh Port in Ratnagiri District, will offer bunkering, storage, re-gasification, re-loading and truck loading facilities and will cater to the growing energy demand of Indian industries.

“With India being one of the fastest growing countries across the globe, its energy consumption continues to rise at a rapid rate. Therefore, the country’s need for clean, safe and affordable fuel has never been greater,’ said ManMohan Ahuja, Project Director of H-Energy, the developer behind the new terminal.

“Marking a significant milestone for the development of port-based industries and social infrastructure across India, the country’s first FSRU-based LNG terminal at Jaigarh Port aims to deliver exactly that.”

Supply scope

For its part, Trelleborg supplied the terminal with its quick release hook units, environmental monitoring system, SmartDock docking aid system and central integrated monitoring system.

Trelleborg’s SmartDock system provides vital information such as distances, angles and speeds to pilots and jetty operators to ensure the vessel is safely docked, significantly reducing the risk of damage from a collision between the ship and the jetty.

The project was managed by Trelleborg’s projects team in Melbourne, Australia, while engineers from Trelleborg’s engineering and design centre of excellence in Ahmedabad, India, carried out the inspection and commissioning of the mooring equipment and attended the berthing of the FSRU.
