MITSUI O.S.K. LINES SELECTED AS SHIPOWNER OF POLAND’S FIRST FSRU
Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, the only company that owns and operates FSRU in Asia, has been selected as the preferred shipowner to time charter out a Floating Storage and Regasification Unit for the planned LNG import terminal in the Gulf of Gdansk, Poland. Polish Gas Transmission System Operator, GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. (Gaz System) is the project developer and operator behind the future LNG terminal.
This is Poland’s first such FSRU and is a strategically important piece of energy infrastructure which will enhance the country’s energy security. The FSRU is assumed to be berthed at a mooring platform approximately 3km from the shore, in the area of the Port of Gdansk between the mouths of the Vistula River branches: Sia?a and Martwa. As part of the project, the necessary offshore and onshore infrastructure will also be constructed.
Commissioning of the complete project is planned in 2027/2028.
