THE WOODLANDS, Texas – The Republic of the Marshall Islands and the government of Belgium have awarded interim documents of compliance (DoC) under the International Safety Management (ISM) Code to Excelerate Technical Management (ETM), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Excelerate Energy L.P.
The ISM DoC authorizes ETM to operate as ship manager for Excelerate’s entire fleet of floating storage and regasification units (FSRU). The interim DoC is the result of an audit of ETM’s safety management system, confirming compliance with ISM standards which ensure the safe operation of its crew and vessels.
Excelerate’s FSRU Experience is the first of its vessels under ETM ship management. On Feb. 6, 2020, the vessel left Navantia dry docks in Fene-Ferrol, Spain, where she underwent scheduled maintenance and upgrades. Also, while in dry dock, the FSRU was rebranded and painted in the company’s brand colors and design, the first of the fleet.
Excelerate will transition its entire fleet to ETM ship management by the end of 2020.
The fleet will be repainted in the new colors as part of scheduled maintenance.
