Recently, Gasum announced that Finland’s first LNG import terminal, located in Pori, has officially commenced operations. Neste Jacobs has now released a statement celebrating the completion of the engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) work that it carried out between 2014 and 2016.
The terminal features state-of-the-art engineering solutions for unloading vessels, storing LNG, ship bunkering operations, truck loading, and the distribution of regasified LNG via pipeline to an industrial park. Neste Jacobs also carried out extensive process risk evaluations and safety automation assessments during the engineering phase to ensure safe operations.
