In August 2019, developers announced that MOL and Karpower International, a subsidiary of Karadeniz, agreed to jointly carry out the first LNG-to-Powership project under the co-brand "KARMOL" in Mozambique. This LNG-to-Powership project consists of the collaborative operations of the FSRU to deliver regasified LNG and the Powership® to receive regasified LNG in order to produce electricity, which is subsequently provided to Electricidade de Moçambique ("EDM"), the Mozambican National Power Utility, through the electricity connection and transmission facility. The FSRU is being converted from an existing LNG Carrier. The Powership is currently operating with heavy fuel oil in Nacala, but in accordance with the prior arrangement with EDM, it will be switched to operation with LNG after the FSRU delivery.
