Skangas and Porin Prosessivoima Oy have entered into an LNG supply agreement whereby Skangas will supply LNG to the Porin Prosessivoima Oy power plant, Finland.
The plant supplies energy to industrial operators in the Kaanaa and Philava areas, and district heat for the Pori Energia Oy district heat network. Porin Prosessivoima Oy will replace heavy fuel oil use with LNG and this will improve the efficiency of energy production as well as reducing the company’s carbon footprint.
Porin Prosessivoima Oy Managing Director, Timo Mäki, said: “We comply with the principles of sustainable development and have made a commitment to reduce emissions from the power plant to meet the stricter emission limits.”
Skangas Key Account Manager, Jouni Bedda, added: “We’re happy that Porin Prosessivoima Oy selected us as its gas supplier. We offer environmentally friendly LNG for a diversity of industrial needs as well as for use as a shipping and heavy-duty road transport fuel. Natural gas is an excellent choice to replace heavy fuel oil in power plant energy production, and environmental friendliness is one of its strengths.”
The gas will be delivered via a connection pipeline from Skangas Pori LNG terminal by Autumn 2016.
