  • Floating, Storage, Regasification, Water-desalination and Power generation (FSRWP®) vessel concept has been developed by MODEC to address global key water and energy needs from a floating platform  
  • Approval in Principle (AiP) was formally recognized in a ceremony at OTC 2018

Paris-La Défense, France, May 02, – Bureau Veritas, a global leader in testing, inspection and certification (TIC) services, has awarded Approval in Principal (AiP) to a new vessel concept design that could provide clean power and water more efficiently and cost-effectively than conventional solutions.

MODEC, the global supplier and operator of offshore floating production platforms, has developed the Floating Storage, Regasification, Water-Desalination and Power-Generation (FSRWP®) vessel, which can provide clean energy and water faster and cheaper than current solutions.

As a new concept, the design is not covered by existing classification society rules but, working alongside Bureau Veritas, with its global presence, including a strong network in Africa, a key potential geographical area for FSRWP® deployment, the two international businesses worked together to find a solution.

Bureau Veritas used its expertise to develop new approaches to classification for this vessel, based on risk mitigation around new technology and requirements. The outcome has been that Bureau Veritas has awarded Approval in Principal to the new FSRWP® vessel.

Matthieu de Tugny COO, Marine & Offshore , Bureau Veritas, said: ‘We were delighted to be able to support MODEC and issue an Approval in Principal for the new design concept vessel.'

‘At Bureau Veritas, we welcome innovation, and are proud to support our clients with their new ideas, using the expertise we have acquired over decades of testing, inspection and certification, to make their ideas reality.'
