Wärtsilä to provide liquefaction expertise to Finland synthetic methane project


Finland-based technology group Wärtsilä will provide the front-end engineering design (FEED) for the liquefaction and storage of liquefied synthetic methane (LSM) at a Power-to-X plant in Kristinestad, Finland.

To be built by Koppö Energia Oy – a joint venture between Germany’s Prime Green Energy Infratructure Fund and CPC Finland Oy – the plant will have a capacity of 200 MW (megawatts) and will convert green electricity into hydrogen and sustainable LSM.

According to the partners, emission-free renewable energy will be developed under the Koppö Energy Cluster in the form of up to 500 MW of wind and 100 MW of photovoltaic power to be provided to the plant.

Reaffirming its commitment to decarbonising energy production, Trond Inge Flønes, Sales and Business Development Manager at Wärtsilä Gas Solutions, added, “As the energy transition progress, we expected green hydrogen to play an increasingly relevant part.”
