Energy infrastructure company Swedegas, which is constructing a liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility at the Port of Gothenburg, has entered into an agreement with Norwegian company Barents NaturGass for the supply of LNG fuel.
Barents NaturGass will supply the LNG using ISO-containers from main European terminals.
“We are very pleased to have the opportunity to work at the largest port in the Nordic region and with the shipping companies that use the port,” says Gudrun Rollefsen, CEO in Barents NaturGass.
“Gothenburg based shipping companies have been amongst the first to adopt LNG in Sweden.
“Several vessels have already been built and launched which are ready to run on LNG. We are keen to start our LNG supply services and meet the customer’s needs.”
Gothenburg’s first LNG facility at the Energy Port is scheduled to be completed and operational by August 2018; the facility allows vessels to bunker LNG while loading or unloading. It is also ready for supply of biogas.
“We always build infrastructure that can handle both natural gas and renewable gas. It must be simple for shipping companies to gradually increase the mix of renewable gas as the transition progresses,” notes Johan Zettergren, Swedegas chief executive.
