Frazer-Nash Consultancy has announced that it has been awarded a place on the Design and Engineering Technical Services framework agreement for National Grid’s Grain LNG import terminal.
Grain LNG has been seeking companies that are able to provide it with a range of design, engineering and technical services as it expands to deliver the UK’s predicted increased requirement for gas. As part of the framework, Grain LNG recently awarded a contract to WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff, who will provide services ranging from feasibility studies, conceptual design and front-end engineering, to safety and risk assessment, and hazard and operability studies (HAZOP) to identify and evaluate potential risks.
Frazer-Nash has been awarded a place on the framework for all three phases of Grain LNG’s projects: pre-feasibility/feasibility and option selection, conceptual design and Front End Engineering Design (FEED).
Martin Concannon, Frazer-Nash Business Manager, said: “We are delighted that Grain LNG [has] awarded us a place on this framework. We believe that our multi-disciplinary expertise and experience of working with customers who have complex, cross-domain and highly regulated requirements will enable us to provide Grain LNG with bespoke solutions.”
Nicola Duffin, senior commercial manager at National Grid’s Grain LNG said: “Grain recently celebrated ten exceptional years of progress and now we are looking to the future, increasing the services we offer to our customers and working to ensure that Grain remains the European port of choice for LNG shippers. Our framework partners are crucial to our safety and success.”
Grain LNG’s terminal, based at the Isle of Grain in Kent, is of strategic national importance to UK energy infrastructure and security of supply. The terminal receives ships berthing at its River Medway jetties and unloads their LNG into storage tanks with a combined capacity of more than one million cubic metres. From these storage tanks the LNG can be transferred to ships, road tankers or re-gasified for injection into the UK’s gas transmission system.
