Case Study

FEED*1 for LNG Plant

LNG Plant

Plant location:
Newcastle, Australia

Hitachi performed the FEED of the LNG plant with Toyo Engineering Corporation.

*1
FEED: Front End Engineering Design

FLNG, FPSO

Shipboard plant

Plant location:
Offshore of Brazil

Our scope of work:
Supplying RO desalination system unit and process compressor which are capable of being operated on board.

Note:
The RO unit desalinates sea water. Desalinated water is used for make-up water.

The process compressor pressurises cure oil for gas separation.
