Norway-based Biokraft, a subsidiary of the Scandinavian Biogas Group and major player in the global biogas market, will be supplied with a biogas liquefaction plant by technology group Wärtsilä.

With the increase in demand for liquefied biogas and global efforts to restrict use of fossil fuels, the 25 tonnes per day capacity plant is set to extend the existing plant at Skogn in Norway.

This extension will produce a combined total of 50 tonnes of bioLNG per day, making it the largest facility of its kind in the world.

“Wärtsilä’s latest mixed refrigerant – MR – technology used in our liquefaction plants is extremely reliable and offers the lowest operating costs for liquefying biogas.”

“We are proud to have once again been selected by Biokraft since it represents a clear endorsement of customer satisfaction.”, said Maria Ortiz, Sales Manager at Biogas Solutions in Wärtsilä Gas Solutions.

Used as fuel in transportation, industrial, and marine applications, bioLNG is an abundant renewable energy source. The Wärtsilä equipment is scheduled for delivery in May 2022.
