PORR S.A. and TGE Gas Engineering will extend the LNG Terminal in Świnoujście

Polskie LNG S.A., which belongs to the Group GAZ-SYSTEM, signed a consortium agreement with PORR S.A. and TGE Gas Engineering for extending the liquified natural gas regasification system (LNG) with additional SCV regasification units. The investment project will increase the current regasification capacity of the President Lech Kaczyński LNG Terminal in Świnoujście by 50%. Works will be completed by the end of 2021.

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.
