Under the consortium agreement PORR S.A. and TGE Gas Engineering will design the system and install LNG regasification units and cryopumps. The agreement covers the installation of i.a. two additional SCV units (Submerged Combustion Vaporisers), which allow to achieve a regasification capacity of 7.5 bn m3 of natural gas per year. The terminal’s current handling capacity is 5 bn m3 of natural gas per year.
Extending the LNG Terminal in Świnoujście is part of Poland’s strategy to gain energy independence. Increasing regasification capacity is the first step of this two-step investment project. In the second step, it is assumed to build a second wharf, a third LNG tank and a railway sidetrack for tank cars and ISO containers.
„For us the contract for extending the gas terminal in Świnoujście is another major project in power engineering. Together with TGE Gas Engineering we will proceed with its execution being fully aware of its importance for Poland’s energy safety and engaging our consortium’s full potential of resources and experience”, said Piotr Kledzik, President of the Board of PORR S.A.
