Technip Energies Loading Systems to supply marine loading arm to TotalEnergies

Technip Energies Loading Systems has announced that it will supply a marine loading arm to TotalEnergies as part of the floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) project in Le Havre, France.

The offloading solution will be installed on Bougain-ville dock in Le Havre and will consist of a marine loading arm to transfer regasified LNG from the proposed floating storage and regasification unit to the shore.

This project was initiated by TotalEnergies and the French Minister of Ecological Transition, following the geopolitical context, in order to strengthen France’s energy independence by increasing LNG imports by ship and ultimately mitigate the impact of a potential reduction of gas deliveries by pipeline.

The FSRU project could allow France to increase its regasification capacity by around 5 billion m3/yr, which corresponds to the average annual gas con-sumption of more than 4 million households in France.

The marine loading arm will be designed, manufac-tured and tested at Technip Energies Loading Sys-tems plant in Sens, France.

Bertrand Chupin, Vice President of Technip En-ergies Loading Systems, commented: “We are very proud to have been selected by TotalEnergies for this strategic project in Le Havre. Through this fast-track project, we are contributing to the accel-eration of French energy independence while providing a French supply chain. In the current ge-opolitical context, LNG is definitely a solution to ad-dress both energy independence and decarbonisa-tion agendas.”
