MAN bags Revithoussa LNG truck loading station job
MAN Energy Solutions has been contracted to engineer and provide supply services to an LNG truck loading infrastructure project for GEK TERNA Group’s construction company TERNA.
The pilot station is part of the Hellenic Gas Transmission System Operator (DESFA) development program for the Revithoussa LNG terminal at the Gulf of Megara, west of Athens.
The terminal has a storage capacity of 225,000 cubic meters providing Greece with increased capability to meet peak gas-demand.
“We will deliver a state-of-the-art, fully-engineered, logistical infrastructure for managing the downstream supply of LNG via trucks to clients,” said Louise Andersson, Head of MAN Cryo, MAN Energy Solutions’ cryogenic division.
Thanassis Papaioannou, Head of Turbomachinery and Power Plants of MAN Energy Solutions in Greece, added that the implementation of this project will create new growth opportunities in areas where there is no existing gas network.
Carsten Dommermuth, Senior Manager Business Development at MAN Energy Solutions, referred to the importance of this kind of LNG hub: “With the availability of central storage facilities for liquefied methane, natural gas now becomes available – independent of pipelines – to support the decarbonisation of the power industry with the cleanest fossil fuel available to the market. Furthermore, this kind of project is also important in terms of future readiness for the use of clean, green hydrogen.”
