Coral Energy Brings First LNG Cargo to Northern Finland


LNG tanker Coral Energy, operated by Scandinavian company Skangas, delivered the first shipload of liquefied natural gas to Tornio, Finland, on November 19.

The cargo was shipped to the Manga LNG natural gas import terminal in Röyttä Harbor, Tornio, a joint venture of the industrial companies Outokumpu and SSAB Europe, the energy company EPV Energy and Skangas.

“It’s a historic moment to receive the first LNG shipment to Northern Finland. We’re strengthening Finland’s energy independence and our position as a leading LNG player in the Nordic countries,” Kimmo Rahkamo, Skangas CEO, said.

Once completed in summer 2018, the import terminal will be the largest LNG terminal in the Nordic countries and the second LNG terminal in Finland, according to Skangas.

The terminal will serve the entire Bay of Bothnia region as well as industrial and mining operators, maritime transport and heavy-duty road transport in Northern Finland, Northern Sweden and Northern Norway.

Wärtsilä, the company responsible for construction delivery, is now preparing the terminal for commissioning. Commercial deliveries are expected to begin in summer 2018.
