Once completed in autumn 2016, the terminal will have a capacity of 30,000 cubic meters. Skangass has already selected the main contractor and suppliers for the project.
”The investment decision will result in speedy progress in the construction project. It is highly important that the Pori terminal is completed on schedule and that we can launch deliveries to our existing and new customers. Interest in LNG is found among industrial, shipping as well as heavy-duty land transport customers,” said Skangass’ Sales and Marketing Director Tommy Mattila.
The Pori LNG terminal will be the third Skangass’ terminal in the Nordic countries. A terminal of the same capacity was recently opened by the company in Lysekil, Sweden.
The Øra terminal in Norway is smaller in terms of its storage capacity. Skangass also has a long-term LNG supply contract with the company Risavika LNG Production. Skangass has charterparties for two LNG tankers and operates a fleet of 20 LNG road trucks.
