I'm not sure but i think EBRV is Exelerate's name for its brand of FSRU

Well, kinda sorta.

From what I can gather Exelerate's EBRVs do the same thing as Golar's FSRUs. The difference are the EBRVs are transporting vessels that connect to specifically designed turret bouys. The FRSUs are permanently moored to a turret system and are delivered to by other LNG vessels. The EBRVs can act as a 'bridge' like the FRSUs taking cargo from other LNG tankers.
"The terminal is permanently moored
to the seabed with a turret mooring arrangement, and the gas
send-out line is arranged through the turret down to the
seabed and to shore via a seabed pipeline. The LNG tankers
offloading to the floating terminal will be moored in a side-by-
side configuration. Berthing, loading and unberthing will take
approximately 24 hours."

But yeah, a lot of it is 'Branding'.
