This offshore project was selected in competition with 6 onshore developments in Italy, and was granted a permit to proceed in 2006. After the hard-fought EIA was eventually approved, a suitable LNG Carrier for modification identified and two years developing the FEED, the EPC project started in 2008. The challenges continued throughout project execution.

FSRU Toscana is unique in many respects. Classed as a 'floating object' 12 nautical miles from the Tuscany coast, the terminal is completely self-contained and provides the same operating flexibilities of an onshore regasification terminal yet successfully complies with stringent environmental limitations. Safety and security rules are paramount and thanks to widespread expertise from the LNG marine industry, the design and operation of this permanently moored terminal have set a new benchmark for the Floating LNG Industry.
