MAN Cryo to deliver LNG regas facility for Forchem in Finland
- Project & Tenders
MAN Energy Solutions’ unit MAN Cryo has won the contract to design and deliver an LNG regasification terminal for the Forchem company in Rauma, Finland.
Forchem, a company producing chemical and animal feed products from tall oil, has chosen to convert the boiler for generating steam for the refinery processing to natural gas/ bio-gas.
MAN Energy Solution will deliver the installation, including offloading skid for LNG trailers, vertically standing 200-cbm vacuum-insulated tank and vaporizer unit.
The installation will be located besides Forchems plant, enabling Forchem to receive deliveries of LNG and LBG (liquified biogas) via tank-truck deliveries. It is designed specifically for Forchem’s requirements considering local climate conditions, minimum maintenance requirements and long lifetime.
The company is pushing its expansion in the Finnish market with this project, said Roger Göthberg, managing director MAN Energy Solutions in Finland and Sweden.
“We see growth potential both within the industrial and marine segments. Having established the Finnish Branch office in 2017, we are now seeing a growing interest in our solutions,” Göthberg.
The Finnish company, Wega Group, an independent energy company, assisted Forchem with the procurement of the LNG regasification terminal.
MAN Energy Solutions took over fuel-gas specialist Cryo AB in 2015 and fully integrated it into its business under the brand MAN Cryo.
