First phase of Klaipeda LNG distribution hub on track

Chart has announced that plans to have the first phase of the Klaipeda LNG distribution hub in Lithuania operational by the end of summer 2017 are on track.

The company claims that three of the five giant cryogenic storage tanks have already been installed at the site. The remaining two, meanwhile, were recently loaded onto the water to commence their journey from Chart’s facility in Decin, Czech Republic, to the job site.

The LNG distribution station will create a small scale LNG infrastructure, and help the port of Klaipeda establish itself as an LNG hub for Baltic countries and Northeastern Poland. The floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) Independence will provide gas for the facility.

Chart’s primary role in the development is the preparation and delivery of the cryogenic section, comprising storage tanks, two truck loading bays, a marine bunkering jetty and the regasification plant. The plant’s overall design allows for future expansion, enabling the storage capacity to be doubled. Chart is also supporting the customer in follow-up projects to develop additional small scale LNG solutions for power generation, vehicle fuelling and other end-use applications.
