Wärtsilä for Gas Supply, Gasum-Skangas for Sales & Distribution

Wärtsilä and Finland-based Gasum are publicizing “a joint cooperation agreement aimed at developing the use, distribution, and service solutions for natural gas in marine and onshore applications.” updated September 14

The natural gas market development agreement was signed in Helsinki on August 29 by Gasum CEO and Skangas board chair Johanna Lamminen and Wärtsilä president and CEO Jaakko Eskola.

The natural gas market development agreement was signed in Helsinki on August 29 by Gasum CEO and Skangas board chair Johanna Lamminen and Wärtsilä president and CEO Jaakko Eskola.

Wärtsilä will provide natural gas value chain technology know-how, while Gasum is to handle distribution and sales of natural gas and biogas/biomethane.

The companies’ work for liquefied natural gas marine applications “will also utilize the expertise of Gasum subsidiary Skangas, the leading LNG player in the Nordic market,” states a release.

Biogas Emphasized

In addition to LNG and/or LBG (liquefied biogas) and natural gas as a marine fuel, the joint initiative will cover smart power generation, and operations and maintenance.

Skangas provided fuel for Polaris, the Finnish Transport Agency’s new LNG-powered icebreaker, at Helsinki’s Vuosaari Harbour facility last week.

Skangas provided fuel for the Wärtsilä-powered Polaris, the Finnish Transport Agency’s new LNG-powered icebreaker, at Helsinki’s Vuosaari Harbour this past June (HHP Insight, June 24).

Also according to the announcement, “The work will focus on increasing sales through business development cooperation, and building an LNG infrastructure in places where gas is currently not available.

‘Cost-Effective & Efficient Operations & Maintenance’

“The companies will share know-how, contacts, marketing, and business development activities. They will also work together to develop cost-effective and efficient operation and maintenance activities.

“By improving the availability of LNG,” the release continues, “the present and future needs of both the shipping sector and industrial clients currently outside the natural gas grids will be served. At the same time, LNG utilization also allows for the use of LBG without additional investment since the same infrastructure can be used for both.”

Skangas has LNG terminals in Øra, Norway, and Lysekil, Sweden.

Finland's first LNG import terminal, the Gasum facility at Pori, north of Turku, opened on Monday, and deliveries have commenced.

Finland’s first LNG import terminal, the Gasum facility at Pori, north of Turku, opened on September 12, and deliveries have commenced.

Finland’s first LNG import terminal at Pori, opened on September 12, Gasum said. “The terminal enables LNG deliveries also to industrial, maritime and heavy-duty road transport customers outside the gas pipeline network and diversifies the Finnish energy market,” states a release.
