Tornio Manga LNG terminal construction project progresses to cornerstone-laying ceremony – terminal to be operational in early 2018

Jaa:

The cornerstone of the Manga LNG Oy Tornio LNG terminal was laid at the Port of Röyttä, Finland, on August 26, 2015. The import terminal project has progressed as planned. Earthmoving work on the site has mainly been completed, and the bottom slab of the LNG terminal was poured at the beginning of August. This autumn terminal tank construction will continue with the slip-forming of the concrete wall of the tank to enable the installation of roof structures before the winter.

During the three-year project, reception, unloading and filling stations for LNG tankers, regasification equipment for liquefied natural gas, and a 50,000 cubic meter storage tank will be constructed at Röyttä. To enable the distribution of gas, a pipeline system as well as a loading terminal for LNG road tankers will also be constructed at the Röyttä industrial area. The LNG terminal will be operational early 2018.

The Manga LNG natural gas import terminal is a joint venture of the industrial companies Outokumpu Oyj and SSAB Oy and the LNG company Skangas and energy company EPV Energy Ltd. The terminal is aimed at diversifying the gas and fuel markets of the northern region by offering a more environmentally friendly and less expensive alternative for northern industry, energy production and shipping. The project is estimated to cost around €100 million and provide around 260 full-time equivalents of employment. The terminal is supplied by Wärtsilä Corporation.
