Polskie LNG inks vaporizers deal with Selas-Linde
Polish LNG terminal operator, Polskie LNG, signed a contract with Selas-Linde for the delivery of the equipment necessary for the expansion program of the President Lech Kaczyński LNG terminal in Świnoujście.
The company will deliver the SCV vaporizers that will boost the facility’s annual sendout capacity to 7.5 billion cubic meters, Polskie LNG said on Thursday.
“The first stage and also the most important objective of the LNG Terminal Expansion Program is to increase the regasification capacity by 50 percent. The contract we have concluded today is a proof of the effective implementation of the planned activities so far, and a guarantee of successful completion of the SCV project by the end of 2021. We are also progressing with three other projects under the Program,” asserted Paweł Jakubowski, president of the management board of Polskie LNG.
SCVs (Submerged Combustion Vaporisers) are devices for changing the physical state of natural gas from liquefied (LNG) into volatile, which is pumped to gas transmission pipelines and finally to households and industrial plants. There are currently five vaporizers of this kind installed at the LNG terminal, four in operation and one redundant.
Under the newly signed contract with Selas-Linde, the two additional vaporizers will be delivered to the facility.
To remind, the terminal expansion project, in addition to the capacity increase, includes the third LNG storage tank with 180,000-cbm capacity, LNG-to-rail transshipment facility, extending the scope of services provided by the LNG terminal to include the option of loading LNG onto ISO containers and tank wagons to reach new potential customers.
It also includes an additional jetty allowing for loading and unloading LNG carriers, transshipment of LNG and loading LNG to bunkering vessels and rendering bunkering services.
