The Tornio Manga LNG receiving terminal - the largest such facility in the entire Nordic region, plays an extremely significant role in lessening the carbon footprint of the region's industrial operations. It is an important environmental milestone for the Baltic Sea area, and especially for Northern Finland and Sweden. An efficient logistics chain is being developed around the terminal, which will create a diversified fuel market benefiting both Northern Finland and Sweden.
Liquefied natural gas (LNG) is an environmentally friendly fuel that is becoming increasingly relevant for industrial facilities, the shipping industry, and energy providers. The new terminal opens significant opportunities for the region's steel mills, mining operations, factories and other industrial customers to reduce their dependency on conventional fossil fuels. Similarly, the terminal will provide bunkering fuel for the new generation of LNG powered ships. LNG contains virtually no sulphur and far fewer particulates than diesel fuels, which is why it is an accepted means of complying with the latest maritime regulations, notably in Sulphur Emissions Control Areas (SECA).
Wärtsilä, on the basis of its unique experience and in-house capabilities, was selected to provide a complete turnkey solution (EPC) for the project. This includes complete unloading, storage, pipeline distribution, and regasification facilities. The storage tank has a 50,000 m3 capacity. Railroad connections and truck access to the terminal will facilitate fast and efficient deliveries of the LNG. We have an exclusive ten-year contract to provide all the service and maintenance required. The terminal is scheduled to be operational by early 2018.
