Naming Ceremony for FSRU Toscana (UAE)

Drydocks World, the leading maritime services provider, after the naming ceremony held yesterday by OLT LNG Offshore Toscana, announced that the FSRU Toscana conversion project at the Dubai based shipyard, is going to be finalized.

The Floating Storage and Re-gasification Unit is intended for a 20 year design life 12 nautical miles off the shores of north-west Italy, in the waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea close to Livorno.

The Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) carrier Golar Frost, a 2004 Korean built 288.6m x 48 m vessel with a design draught of 11m and lightweight of 34,000 tonnes and storage capacity of 135,000 cu. m of LNG, came to Dubai in June 2009 for conversion for contractor Saipem and client OLT Offshore LNG Toscana SpA. This is one of the most sophisticated conversion projects carried out by the shipyard.

“This is indeed a tremendous achievement and a testimonial to our technical and project management capabilities that enable us to take on projects of a high level of sophistication and advancement. We are indeed keen to take on increasingly challenging projects for the offshore deep sea exploration and production sector as we have proven time and again that we have the capacity and capability to implement projects for leaders in the offshore industry in a timely manner, while maintaining high standards in safety and quality,” said Khamis Juma Buamim, Chairman of Drydocks World and Maritime World.
