Golar LNG Partners' floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) Golar Freeze is seen at New Fortress Energy's floating storage and regasification terminal in Old Harbour Bay Jamaica two weeks ago.

The terminal will be used to supply natural gas to Jamaica Public Service's new Old Harbour power plant and the new co-generation power plant at Jamalco's alumina refinery in Clarendon, as well as other industrial customers. In addition, the terminal will be used as New Fortress's energy hub in the region.

LNG World News reported that the 125,000-cbm FSRU Golar Freeze will serve a 15-year charter for New Fortress Energy as an import facility supplying new gas-fired power plants.

Golar Freeze was previously converted into an FSRU from an LNG carrier and has a 4.9 billion cubic metres per year regasification capacity,” the publication said.
