Wärtsilä has signed a turnkey contract to supply an LNG receiving terminal to be built in Raahe, Finland.
The LNG terminal is scheduled to be operational in April 2018, supplied by trucks from Wärtsilä’s first LNG terminal installation, the Tornio Manga facility in Finnish Lapland.
Wärtsilä has signed an EPCI (engineering, procurement, construction and installation) contract with energy company, Raahen Voima. The scope includes two LNG vacuum insulated storage tanks with a combined net volume of 1,400m3, an LNG regasification system, truck loading and unloading functions, and all required civil structures.
“We are excited to be chosen as the EPC contractor for this LNG project. LNG not only provides a reliable source of fuel, but also allows customers to produce their products with a smaller impact on the environment,” said Timo Mahlanen, Senior Business Development Manager, Wärtsilä Energy Solutions.
The main user for the natural gas from the terminal (illustrated below) will be the SSAB Raahe steel mill. By using LNG to generate power and heat to the mill, SSAB will be able to move to cleaner energy production; as a result, the steel mill will notably reduce its carbon dioxide (CO2), NOx and SOx footprint.
Pakistan has taken another step towards becoming a key buyer of liquefied natural gas (LNG) after signing a deal to purchase a floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) unit for its second import terminal.
Crowley Maritime Corp. has inaugurated its fourth liquefied natural gas (LNG) ready, product tanker at the Philly Shipyard, Inc. (PSI) in Philadelphia, US.
