A first floating storage and regasification unit has arrived in Germany for the country's planned fast-track import facility at Lubmin ahead of a planned start-up of imports in December.

Local news channels reported that the 145,130-cbm FSRU Neptune (built 2009) is in the Baltic Sea port of Mukran.

The Hoegh LNG Partners-controlled FSRU is at the centre of the TotalEnergies and Deutsche ReGas-led private project for the draft-restricted port in northeast Germany.
