Per Kjellin, Managing Director of TMC, said: “This is the 8th or 9th FSRU that Hyundai Heavy Industries is building for Höegh LNG, and we have delivered marine compressed air systems to all of them. Repeat orders such as this for high-end vessels is a confirmation that both Höegh and Hyundai Heavy Industries value the reliability a fully marinised compressor technology like ours provides.”
