Wärtsilä has announced that it has been awarded a contract to supply a biohybrid production plant to German energy company, Erdgas Südwest GmbH. The contract was signed in December 2016, and delivery will be executed on a fast-track basis.

The plant will produce both liquefied biogas (bioLNG) and LNG. The liquefaction system is specially designed to clean and liquefy both biogas and pipeline gas streams.

Timo Koponen, Vice President, Flow & Gas Solutions, Wärtsilä Marine Solutions, said: “The contract award is based upon Wärtsilä’s compact and proven technology, and on our capabilities in adapting the system to the customer’s specific needs. Biogas and pipeline gas compositions can vary substantially, and Wärtsilä Gas Solutions’ advanced technology can handle both.”

Oliver Auras, Project Director, Erdgas Südwest GmbH, added: “This is a very important milestone for us at Erdgas Südwest. It is a completely new concept adapted to the future needs of the German energy market, and we see a great future for this storage solution.”
