MAN Energy Solutions has announced that it has been commissioned by OxGas – a company fully owned by the Port of Oxelösund in Sweden – to act as owners engineer in the development and construction of a multi-functional terminal for liquefied methane-based fuels in the port.
According to the statement, the terminal will be able to feed both LNG and green methane derived from biogas to SSAB’s steel production in Oxelösund, and to redistribute it via train and trailers to other parts of Sweden.
In addition to this, the facility will also feature a bunkering solution that enables vessels to bunker LNG and other methane-based fuels in the port directly from the terminal. OxGas has selected MAN Energy Solutions to support the development of a class leading functionality, designed and built to offer excellent operational performance and flexibility for the future.
Douglas Heilborn, CEO OxGas & Port of Oxelösund, said: “It is important for us to work with a company that understands our vision and demands for what will be the single biggest investment ever made in the port.
“We have chosen to work with MAN Energy Solutions because of their experience, competence and pro-activeness in offering cryogenic and complex multifunctional energy solutions. After its construction in two years the terminal will be a key element in the development of the port, Oxelösund as city and the accessibility to liquefied methane in Sweden in the coming decades.”
Louise Andersson, who heads the MAN Energy Solutions competence centre for Cryogenic solutions based in Gothenburg, said: “We are very proud of having been selected to support OxGas in their development of a new terminal in the port of Oxelösund.
“We have been closely involved in the development of previous LNG terminal projects in Sweden and we look forward to support OxGas and the Port of Oxelösund in the development of their new business.”
Carsten Dommermuth, Senior Manager International Business Development at MAN Energy Solutions added: ”We strongly believe in LNG and other sustainable synthetic fuels as an important strategic pillar to decarbonise the power industry, transport and industry sector.”
