MAN Cryo to develop liquefied methane terminal in Sweden

The terminal will be designed to feed both LNG and green methane derived from biogas to SSAB ’s steel production in Oxelosund, and to re-distribute it via train and trailers to other parts of Sweden

OxGas, a company fully owned by the Port of Oxelosund in Sweden, 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 in the port of Oxelosund.
 
The terminal will be designed to feed both LNG and green methane derived from biogas to SSAB ’s steel production in Oxelosund, and to re-distribute it via train and trailers to other parts of Sweden.
 
The terminal will also feature a bunkering solution enabling vessels to bunker LNG and other methane-based fuels in the port of Oxelosund directly from the terminal. OxGas has engaged MAN Energy Solutions to support it in the development of a class leading functionality, designed and built to offer excellent operational performance and flexibility for the future.
 
“It is important for us to work with a company that understands our vision and demands for what will be the single biggest investment ever made in the port,” said Douglas Heilborn, CEO OxGas & Port of Oxelosund. “We have chosen to work with MAN Energy Solutions because of their experience, competence and pro-activeness in offering cryogenic and complex multifunctional energy solutions. After its construction in two years the terminal will be a key element in the development of the port, Oxelosund as city and the accessibility to liquefied methane in Sweden in the coming decades.”
 
MAN Cryo is based in Gothenburg, headed by Louise Andersson, said “We are very proud of having been selected to support OxGas in their development of a new terminal in the port of Oxelosund. We have been closely involved in the development of previous LNG terminal projects in Sweden and we look forward to support OxGas and the Port of Oxelosund in the development of their new business.”
 
Carsten Dommermuth, Senior Manager International Business Development at MAN Energy Solutions, added ”We strongly believe in [LNG] and other sustainable synthetic fuels as an important strategic pillar to decarbonise the power industry, transport and industry sector.”
