LNG distributor Skangass has decided to build a new import terminal for LNG after gaining investment support from the Finnish Government of 185 million NOK (€22.5 million).
The terminal will be finished in 2016. Skangass wish to create an efficient LNG logistics chain in the Pori area of Finland.
When the terminal is complete it will have a capacity of 30,000m3. 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,’ says sales and marketing director Tommy Mattila from Skangass.
The Pori LNG terminal will be the third Skangass terminal in the Nordic countries. A terminal of the same capacity was opened by the company in Lysekil, Sweden, last year. The Øra terminal in Norway is smaller in terms of its storage capacity.
