MacGregor receives an order from Summit LNG Terminal in Bangladesh for the project management, engineering and supply of a complete subsea mooring and riser system.

The MacGregor system will serve Summit’s floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU). Delivery will be completed in the fourth quarter 2018.

This order is part of a project to support Summit LNG Terminal’s development of Bangladesh’s power-supply infrastructure. The MacGregor equipment for the FSRU includes Flintstone mooring connectors, as well as project management for the fabrication, procurement and project management of the complete subsea mooring and riser system. The FSRU will be ready for operation on the site during the first quarter of 2019.

“We are convinced about MacGregor’s ability to successfully carry out this demanding project with its experience in providing innovative subsea mooring and riser system solutions as well as managing demanding projects,” says ANM Tariqur Rashid, Managing Director of Summit LNG Terminal, according to a press release from MacGregor.

“We are happy to conclude this important contract, which closely covers the same scope as an earlier announced contract involving the collaboration of several trusted companies,” says Høye G. Høyesen, Vice President, Advanced Offshore Solutions, MacGregor.

“This order demonstrates our customer’s trust in us to help it secure an improved power-supply infrastructure for Bangladesh. This second order in such a short time supports our strategic goal to expand our presence in the FSRU market with the combined strength of MacGregor and Flintstone,” says Michel van Roozendaal, President, MacGregor.
