Extension of the onshore part of the LNG Terminal in Świnoujście with building permit

Warsaw, 11.02.2021 – The consortium composed of PORR S.A. and TGE Gas Engineering GmbH received the building permit for extending the onshore part of the LNG Terminal in Świnoujście named after President Lech Kaczyński. The decision was issued almost five months before the assumed deadline in the investment project’s time schedule. The contract for the design and extension of the LNG Terminal was concluded with Polskie LNG, a company belonging to the GAZ-SYSTEM Group, in June 2020.

The scope of the extension of the Terminal’s onshore part covers the construction of a new – third – FCT, that is ‘full containment tank’, for the process storage of liquefied natural gas (LNG) with a nominal capacity of 180 000 m3 as well as the construction of all necessary systems and devices connecting that tank to the other facilities of the Terminal. With the acquired decision, a new electrical substation will also be built, as well as a BOG compressor building, flyovers, process pipelines, necessary roads and related systems.

The new tank is designed to store liquefied natural gas in an operating temperature of ca. -162°C, and its exterior diameter will amount to 83.6 m. That means, that it will be bigger than each of the two tanks currently in operation on Terminal premises.

Works will be carried out in accordance with the strictest technological regime, which was imposed, because the works are to be performed on the premises of an operating plant of strategic importance for the country. It is planned to complete the investment project by the end of 2023.
