OxGas, a company owned by the Port of Oxelösund in Sweden, has commissioned MAN Energy Solutions to develop a multi-functional terminal for liquefied methane-based fuels at the port, which will include facilities for bunkering LNG and other methane-based fuels.
The terminal will be designed to feed both LNG and green methane derived from biogas to SSAB ’s steel production facility in Oxelösund, and to re-distribute it via train and truck to other parts of Sweden.
‘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,’ commented Douglas Heilborn, CEO OxGas & Port of Oxelösund.
‘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, Oxelösund as city and the accessibility to liquefied methane in Sweden in the coming decades.’
Carsten Dommermuth, Senior Manager International Business Development at MAN Energy Solutions, also said: ‘We strongly believe in liquefied natural gas and other sustainable synthetic fuels as an important strategic pillar to decarbonise the power industry, transport and industry sector.’
MAN Energy Solutions took over fuel-gas specialist Cryo AB in 2015 and fully integrated it into its business under the MAN Cryo brand.
