OxGas, a company fully owned by the Port of Oxelösund, has commissioned MAN Energy Solutions to act as ‘owners engineer’ in the development and construction of a multi-functional terminal for liquefied methane-based fuels.

The terminal will be designed to feed both liquefied natural gas (LNG) and green methane derived from biogas to SSAB ’s steel production in Oxelösund and to re-distribute it via train and trailers to other parts of Sweden, MAN Energy Solutions said in its statement.

The terminal will also feature a bunkering solution enabling vessels to bunker LNG and other methane-based fuels in the port of Oxelösund directly from the terminal.

OxGas has engaged MAN Energy Solutions to support them in the development of functionality, designed and built to offer excellent operational performance and flexibility for the future.

Douglas Heilborn, CEO OxGas & Port of Oxelösund, said, “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.”
