July 10 (SeeNews) - Croatian company LNG Hrvatska (LNG Croatia), the operator of the country's liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal on Krk island, said it has opened a tender for conversion services of its floating storage regasification unit (FSRU) ship, aiming to boost the terminal's capacity.

The estimated value of the project is 17 million euro ($18.4 million), according to a note published on the Croatian electronic public procurement portal last week. LNG Croatia is the investor and the project holder of the capacity increase of the LNG terminal on Krk island.

The deadline to apply for the procurement procedure is August 8.

The works are expected to start on September 16 and be completed by the end of next year.

The tender involves two contracts: one for procuring and installing electrical power equipment to integrate the FSRU with a new gasification module and meeting facility, and another for installing and commissioning equipment for gasification on the ship.

In April last year, LNG Croatia and Norway-based supplier of cargo handling and reliquefaction systems Wartsila Gas Solutions will deliver an additional regasification module worth 22.97 million euro.

LNG Hrvatska has said that the installation of the new regasification module on the FSRU vessel would allow the company to boost the capacity of the terminal to 6.1 billion cubic metres of gas per year from the current 2.9 billion cubic metres.

The floating LNG terminal on Krk island started operating in January 2021. It delivers natural gas to the Croatian national transmission network, which is connected to fellow EU member states Slovenia, Italy and Hungary, as well as to non-EU members Serbia and Montenegro.
