The Norway-based Biokraft, a unit of the Scandinavian Biogas Group is looking to extend its bioLNG production plant at Skogn in Norway.

Wärtsilä has also delivered the initial facility and the addition of a new 25 tons per day capacity plant will add up to a total of 50 tons per day, making the Skagn plant the largest facility of its kind in the world, Wärtsilä said in its statement.

The tech group added that the market for liquefied biogas continues to expand along with the increase in global efforts to restrict the use of fossil fuels.

BioLNG is an abundant renewable energy source that is used as ‘green’ fuel in transportation, industrial, and marine applications.

The Wärtsilä equipment is scheduled for delivery in May 2022.
