MAN Cryo is MAN Diesel & Turbo’s marine LNG fuel gas system manufacturer. This new facility will allow vessels to bunker LNG from trucks or containers, whilst at the same time loading or unloading cargo at two jetties at the port’s Energy Port. This removes the need to make a separate refuelling stop, and provides increased flexibility for customers and LNG suppliers.
Mikael Adler, Managing Director of MAN Diesel & Turbo, Sweden, said: “We are very happy to have won the contract to build this first such bunkering facility in the important Port of Gothenburg. Our strategy to offer LNG solutions to the marine market, both on board vessels as fuel-gas supply systems but also as bunkering infrastructure, dovetails perfectly with the general development towards cleaner ship propulsion.
“We strive to bring robust, smart and flexible solutions to the market, and this strategic project is an excellent example of that.”
The facility will consist of a discharge station for LNG trailers or containers, feeding pumps, vacuum-insulated piping and bunkering equipment to enable efficient operations. In addition to this, the facility will help to satisfy more stringent sulfur directives for shipping, and has reportedly been designated by the EU as one of the most prioritised infrastructure projects in Europe.
MAN Cryo will work under an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract, managed from MAN Diesel & Turbo’s office in Gothenburg.
The LNG bunkering facility is scheduled to open next year. Swedegas will operate and manage the facility in close cooperation with the Port of Gothenburg.
