“FSRU Toscana” is permanently anchored to the seabed through an advanced mooring system, with a single point of rotation at the bow in order to allow the ship to move around the mooring turret, therefore being able to adapt to different sea weather conditions.
The Terminal, permanently moored about 22 km off the Italian coast between Livorno and Pisa, transforms the liquefied natural gas, received by LNG carriers, back to its normal gaseous state.
The Terminal is connected to the mainland through a long pipeline of 36.5 km, operated and managed by Snam: 29.5 km at sea, 5 km in the floodway, the remaining 2 km on dry land, completely buried and directly connected to the Italian National Grid.
The Terminal (out of water) has the following features: length 306,49 meters, width 48 meters, height 26.5 meters.
Maximum authorized regasification capacity: 3.75 billion Sm3/year and 15 million Sm3/day.
Gross storage capacity: 137,100 m3.
The Terminal is equipped with a WOBBE Index Corrector installed on board, that enables to receive almost all the LNG produced in the world; therefore it is possible to meet the limits required by the Italian gas grid operator.
The plant can receive LNG from LNG carriers with a cargo capacity between 65,000 m3 and 180,000 m3 (New Panamax class, around the 90% of the current worldwide LNGc fleet) at a maximum flow rate of 12,000 m3/hr.
