Fuelgarden setting up LNG installation for world’s largest salmon producer
Published by Will Owen,
Norway-based LNG design and engineering company Fuelgarden Energy has commissioned a temporary LNG installation on the Isle of Skye in Scotland. The LNG installation is supplying natural gas to Mowi´s newbuilt fish feed factory at Kyleakin.
Mowi, the world´s largest salmon producer, has constructed a new fish feed factory at Kyleakin in Scotland. The fish feed factory, with an estimated cost of £125 million, will produce fish feed to Mowi´s salmon fish farms in Scotland, Ireland and the Faroe Islands. The process to produce the fish feed requires thermal energy, and for this purpose Fuelgarden Energy has designed and project managed the construction of a 2000 m3 LNG terminal. The LNG terminal is mechanically complete, with commissioning planned for 3Q19. Whilst waiting for the LNG terminal to be started up, Fuelgarden Energy has designed and commissioned a mobile LNG installation that is supplying natural gas to the fish feed factory on a temporary basis.
“As an LNG designer with specialisation in off-grid energy solutions we are very pleased to have been assigned the task by Mowi to design and project manage both the permanent and the temporary LNG solution at their newbuilt fish feed factory at Kyleakin” said Dag Lilletvedt, founder and CEO of Fuelgarden Energy. “The temporary LNG installation has been designed with mobile LNG tanks and by using existing cryogenic equipment in the market”.
Mowi´s Project Director, Mick Watts, says “We are very pleased that Fuelgarden managed to find a way to temporarily supply our newbuilt fish feed factory with natural gas on such short notice. From the time of project decision to the time of commissioning it only took them about three months. The LNG installation is currently supplying the natural gas we require”.
