Greece strengthens energy security with new fast-tracked FSRU


Engineering and certification specialist RINA has joined forces with Greek engineering consultancy Asprofos to provide project management consultancy (PMC) services for the Alexandroupolis Independent Natural Gas System (INGS), which will consist of a permanently moored floating storage regasification unit (FSRU) and pipeline system.

Stationed in the north-eastern part of the Aegean Sea, the FSRU will have a storage capacity of 153,000m3 with a nominal gas send out rate of 625,000m3/h.
