According to the statement, the commercial use of the Tornio import terminal begins this year.
Tommy Mattila, Sales and Marketing Director, Natural Gas and LNG, Gasum, said: “LNG is excellently suited for use as a marine fuel as it's a great alternative to oil, and being environmentally friendly is one of its strengths. We’ve already supplied LNG for northern ports such as Luleå, Sweden, and Kemi and Oulu, Finland. Polaris is the first vessel bunkered in Tornio. The start of the commercial use of the Tornio Manga LNG terminal strengthens Gasum’s LNG supply chain in Northern Finland and Sweden for industry and maritime transport.”
