Tornio Manga LNG receiving terminal
”The Tornio Manga LNG terminal is a long-term infrastructure investment programme. The beneficiaries include shipping and road transportation companies, power and heat utilities, as well as other industrial and mining companies in northern Europe. We appreciate Wärtsilä’s participation as a valuable partner in the project with special value-adding capabilities in this field.”
- Pekka Erkkilä, Chairman of the Board, Manga LNG Oy
Manga Terminal Oy is building a liquefied natural gas (LNG) import terminal in Tornio, Finland. This terminal will be the largest such facility in the entire Nordic region. An efficient logistics chain is being developed around the terminal, which will create a diversified fuel market benefiting both Northern Finland and Sweden.
Furthermore, LNG is a low emission fuel, which can be utilised by the land-based industry, the shipping industry and the energy industry. Compared to alternative fossil fuels, substantial reductions can be obtained in carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxide and particulate matters emissions.
Wärtsilä, on the basis of its unique experience and in-house capabilities, was selected to provide a complete turnkey solution for the project. This includes all the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) work involved. 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.
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's turnkey solution for the terminal 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.
While Wärtsilä is a recognised leader in gas engine technology, the company also offers products, solutions and services throughout the entire LNG distribution chain. In particular, we focus on developing smaller scale capabilities, including the technology for both liquefaction and regasification. For example, more than one third of the world's floating storage and regasification units (FSRU) in active operation have been supplied by Wärtsilä. Additionally, our Tank Control Systems are used in many of the world's leading LNG facilities.
The Tornio Manga LNG receiving terminal will play an extremely significant role in lessening the carbon footprint of the region's industrial operations. It is, therefore, an important environmental milestone for the Baltic Sea area, and especially for Northern Finland and Sweden. The project also showcases Wärtsilä's expertise in this field.
