After reaching the point of being technically ready to use, the Tornio Manga LNG receiving terminal in Finland is now scheduled to welcome its first shipment of liquefied natural gas.

The next step of the project is expected to take place in November 2017 when the shipment is scheduled to arrive at the terminal, according to liquefied natural gas (LNG) provider Skangas, one of the partners in the joint venture developing the terminal.

“We’re very satisfied with achieving this significant project milestone on schedule despite severe weather conditions. We’re now looking forward to moving towards the commissioning and start-up phase in order to start LNG deliveries to our customers,” Mika Kolehmainen, CEO, Manga LNG Oy, said.

Finnish technology group Wärtsilä has been hired for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract for the terminal project, which will feature a storage volume of 50,000 m3.

Wärtsilä’s turnkey solution for the terminal also includes systems for LNG ship unloading, LNG storage, ship bunkering, LNG truck loading, and LNG regasification and injection into the local natural gas network.

The Manga LNG terminal project is a joint venture of Skangas, Outokumpu, SSAB and EPV Energy that is due for completion in early 2018. Once completed, the terminal will be the largest LNG import terminal in the Nordic countries, the partners informed.
