Wärtsilä Gets Green Light for Its First LNG Terminal

Wärtsilä Gets Green Light for Its First LNG Terminal
Manga LNG Oy has given Wärtsilä full notice to proceed (NTP) with the supply of a liquefied natural gas (LNG) import terminal in Tornio, Northern Finland.

Wärtsilä said it would commence construction on the site near the port of Tornio in January 2015.

Manga LNG Oy is a joint venture of Outokumpu Group, Svenskt Stål AB (SSAB), Skangass and EPV Energy Ltd.

 The order is valued at approximately EUR 100 million.

The turnkey delivery of the first import terminal supplied by Wärtsilä includes complete unloading, storing and regasification equipment for LNG.

The capacity of the LNG storage tank will be 50 000 cubic metres. A 10-year maintenance agreement was also signed between the parties.

Wartsila said that the first maintenance agreement for an LNG terminal complements its service proposition and experience within dual fuel and gas engines and related equipment.

One of the main users of the imported natural gas will be the Outokumpu Tornio steel mill.

A gas pipeline will be built to the nearby Röyttä industrial site, where the mill is located. Additional potential gas users are mines, factories and other industrial customers in Northern Finland and Sweden. Railroad and truck transportation from the terminal will be available.

The terminal can also be used for LNG bunkering as well as to supply fuel for LNG-powered ships, the company detailed. 

 “The world is switching to natural gas, and we make it available in new places. With our unique turnkey offering, we are ready take a leading role in end-to-end LNG systems,” says Tore Björkman, Vice President, LNG and Nuclear, Wärtsilä Power Plants.
