German LNG Terminal has started the engineering, procurement and construction prequalification process for its LNG terminal project in Brunsbuettel, northern Germany.
Potential EPC contractors announcing their interest to participate in the project on or before July 1, 2019 will receive a pre-qualification package.
Binding offers will have to be prepared and submitted by pre-qualified bidders between August and October 2019. The winning bidder(s) will be announced during the first quarter of 2020, followed by the release of an early notice to proceed to commence scheduled early activities.
