Construction works kick off at Gothenburg's shore LNG facility

Swedegas, a gas grid owner and operator based in Gothenburg, has started setting up its liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility in the Skarvik part of the Gothenburg port's Energy Harbour.

Once commissioned later the year, the facility will comprise a discharge station, a 450 m long vacuum-insulated cryogenic pipeline, and quay-to-ship bunkering equipment able to supply vessels at three berths at jetties nos. 519 and 521. LNG will be brought by either tank trucks or in containers.

At the moment, Skangas offers ship-to-ship bunkering in the area of the Port of Gothenburg by means of its brand-new purpose-built bunkering vessel Coralius.

"With both Skangas and Swedegas operating at the Port of Gothenburg, we have two companies that complement each other with different offerings. Shipping lines now have a further incentive to consider switching to LNG," Jill Söderwall, Vice President and Head of Commercial Operations at the Port of Gothenburg's Energy Harbour, said.

Johan Zettergren, Chief Executive, Swedegas, also commented, "As is the case with the gas transmission network, in which both natural gas and biogas can be transported, the new facility will be flexible and can also be used for the storage and transport of renewable gas. Customers with access to the transmission network can already choose biogas, and this is something we are looking to extend to the shipping sector as the next step in their transition to environmentally correct alternatives."
