Skangass, a subsidiary of Gasum, has made an investment decision concerning the Pori LNG terminal. The terminal will have a capacity of 30,000 m3 and the expected completion for the project is autumn 2016.
Skangass has selected the main contractor and suppliers for the project. The key project partners are Neste Jacobs (ECPM contract), KVL-Tekniikka Oy (site construction and piling work) and FCC Industrial (EPC storage tank). Subcontractors for FCC Industrial in the project will include Destia Ltd and Rudus Oy.
The construction project is estimated to create 250 full-time employment positions. Once operational, the terminal will employ approximately 10 people directly and 50 people indirectly.
Commenting on the decision, Skangass Director, Tommy Mattila, said: “The investment decision will speed up the progress of the construction project. It is highly important that the Pori terminal is completed on schedule and that we can launch deliveries to our existing and new customers. Interest in LNG exists among industrial, shipping as well as heavy-duty land transport customers.”
The LNG terminal in Tahkoluoto, Pori will be the Skangass’ third terminal in the Nordic countries.
