The FSP system – a new flat-panel, semi-membrane, prismatic-shaped LNG tank-containment system Type B – uses new flat plate technology to overcome the issues associated with partial filling and sloshing. The system employs the ‘riction stir welding technique, used in the aerospace industry, for optimum integral strength.
FSP can be used in a wide range of applications: Floating Production and Storage (FPSO); Floating Storage Regasification Units (FSRU), LNG transportation and LNG marine fuel tanks. It can also be used as offshore storage.
The new Type B containment system has been designed to be constructed, outfitted, insulated and tested off hull and lifted complete onto the platform. The use of on shore construction facilities ensures the highest standards of quality care and repeatability.
