MAN Developing Terminal For Liquefied Methane-Based Fuels
By DJ Slater27 March 2020
MAN Energy Solutions will act as “owners engineer” in the development and construction of a multi-functional terminal for liquefied methane-based fuels in the port of Oxelösund in Sweden.
The terminal will be designed to feed liquefied natural gas (LNG) and green methane derived from biogas to SSAB’s steel production in Oxelösund, and to re-distribute it via train and trailers to other parts of Sweden. OxGas, a company fully owned by the Port of Oxelösund, selected MAN Energy Solutions for the project.
The terminal will also feature a bunkering solution enabling vessels to bunker LNG and other methane-based fuels in the port of Oxelösund directly from the terminal, which MAN Energy Solutions expects to construct in two years.
MAN Energy Solutions’ competence center for Cryogenic solutions – MAN Cryo – is based in Gothenburg, Sweden. The company took over fuel-gas specialist Cryo AB in 2015 and fully integrated it into its business. Under the brand MAN Cryo, the company offers systems for the storage, distribution and handling of liquefied gases.
