Wartsila clinches contract to supply Finnish LNG terminal

Wartsila clinches contract to supply Finnish LNG terminal
Technology group Wartsila has clinched a turnkey contract from Hamina LNG to supply a LNG receiving terminal to be built in Hamina, Finland.

The scope of the contract work includes site filling, soil refurbishment, civil works, infrastructure, full containment storage tank with a combined net volume of 30,000 cu m, regasification and gas metering, boil-off gas handling system, electrical and control system, unloading, loading system and bunkering and truck loading.

The LNG terminal is scheduled to be operational in August 2020.

The port of Hamina will be the first LNG receiving terminal in Finland connected to Finnish gas grid, offering security of supply to gas customers. When the terminal is operational, LNG can be delivered very quickly also to major harbours in Finland by using trucks.

“We wanted to create a terminal infrastructure which would provide bunkering for vessels as well as diversify the country’s sources of gas supply. Wartsila offered us full EPC capabilities as well as a unique know-how in gas processing,” said Peter van Buuren, ceo of Hamina LNG, a joint venture between Hamina Energia and Alexela Varahalduse.

Timo Mahlanen, senior business development manager, Wärtsilä Energy Solutions, said: “The Hamina project is part of Finland’s plans to create a network of medium scale LNG terminals with the aim of offering gas supply to the local industry and LNG for ship bunkering, and ensuring an additional source of gas for Finland.

“The project will bring a significant reduction in carbon dioxide emissions by providing cleaner fuel for transport and industry. At the same time, the LNG infrastructure will increase the security of supply in Finland with gas grid connection,” Mahlanen said.
