At the end of 2016, Wärtsilä was awarded the turnkey contract to supply an LNG satellite terminal to Raahe, in northern Finland. A major milestone in the project was reached when the two LNG storage tanks were transported to the terminal site at the end of November 2017.
The local utility, Raahen Voima, will utilise the LNG to replace the use of LPG for generating power and heat to its’ major consumer, a local SSAB steel mill.
