SIAD supplies BOG compressors for coastal storage facility


Italian energy company SIAD Macchine Impianti (SIAD MI) has supplied cryogenic gas storage specialist Gas and Heat with two Boil-Off Gas (BOG) compressors for Gas and Heat’s first coastal storage facility in the Mediterranean.

Located in Sardinia, the facility was designed to receive, and store liquefied natural gas (LNG). The depot began construction in 2015 and saw its first LNG unloading on 26th May 2021 when the bunker vessel Avenir Accolade transferred a cargo of over 7,000m3.

Commenting on the success of the project, Mauro Evangelisti, Chairman, Gas and Heat, said, “The project of the first so-called ‘Small Scale LNG’ depot started in 2015. Then, in 2017 we built four tanks and gas plants installed on board the bunker vessel Avenir Accolade.”

“In 2019, work began on the construction of the 9,000m3 coastal depot and today we have achieved delivery.”
