First-Ever Such Multi-Purpose Facility for the UK
Bergen, Norway-based Fuelgarden Energy says it’s been awarded a front-end engineering and design (FEED) contract on a multi-purpose liquefied natural gas facility to be built in the UK. The plant is to provide LNG fuel for heating at a new factory, as well as for the bunkering of LNG-fueled marine vessels.
“This will be the first time such a multi-purpose small-scale LNG regasification and LNG bunkering plant is being built in the UK,” states a Fuelgarden release. “The LNG plant shall be ready for operations in the beginning of 2018,” the announcement states.
“Industrial companies as well as shipping companies are constantly looking for ways to reduce their fuel bills as well as their emissions,” Fuelgarden founder and CEO Dag Lilletvedt says in the release.
Not for the New CalMac Pair
“Through our engineering capabilities and small-scale LNG expertise we are able to combine the needs of an industrial plant for gas with ships requiring LNG as fuel.”
The plant will be in Scotland, Lilletvedt says. But, contrary to at least one published report, he told HHP Insight, it is not intended for the two new LNG-diesel dual fuel ferries being built outside Glasgow by Ferguson Marine Engineering for Caledonian MacBrayne (HHPi, May 17).
Fuelgarden’s client for the multi-purpose plant is “a major international industrial company.
