The FSRU "Exemplar” measures 291 meters long and 43 meters wide with a storage capacity of 150,900 m3 of LNG. The floating platform can process more than five billion cubic meters per year (bcm/y) of regasification capacity: "The arrival of the FSRU ‘Exemplar’ at the port of Inkoo represents an important milestone for Finland as it prepares to enhance its energy security and bring essential energy infrastructure to the region," Steven Kobos, President and CEO of Excelerate, has said.
