Spain: UFG Clients Visit Sagunto LNG Plant
A delegation of Unión Fenosa Gas clients today visited the Saggas regasification plant in Sagunto.
During the visit, the delegation was hosted by Director General, Santiago Alvarez. The visitors got to know details of the operation of the regasification plant and the development company Saggas, of which Unión Fenosa Gas is its main shareholder.
The Sagunto regasification plant is located at the end of the breakwater to the South of the Sagunto port extension, on a platform of 23 hectares reclaimed from the sea.
The port of Sagunto is an ideal place for the installation of a plant of this kind, due to its privileged position in the Mediterranean Arc, the meteorological conditions of the zone, the effectiveness of the port terminal in which the plant is located and through being an industrial zone and communications hub.
This plant is equipped with the most advanced technological and security systems applied to the regasification process.
In March of this year, Saggas diversified its activity and adapted its facilities to be able to load liquefied natural gas carriers. The loading of the ships is, like the unloading and regasification, a regulated activity in the Spanish gas system.
