The energy company Gasum on Friday (20 August) said it has won the framework agreement in a competitive tendering process organised by the Finnish government central purchasing body, Hansel Ltd.
Gasum will supply liquefied natural gas (LNG) to the Finnish Transport Infrastructure Agency and the Finnish Border Guard for 2021-2022 as set forth in the framework agreement.
The framework agreement has an option for an additional two years.
“Our well-functioning cooperation with Gasum will continue. Our competitive tendering process has helped achieve a framework arrangement that works well in this developing market, with suppliers as well as client needs taken into consideration,” says Pasi Tainio, Category Manager, Hansel.
“The framework arrangement enables government organisations to source LNG with a high level of supply security and with consideration for responsibility aspects. LNG is better shipping fuel than oil for climate and this framework arrangement enables clients to also procure bio version of LNG.”
“We have been supplying LNG to the Finnish Transport Infrastructure Agency and the Finnish Border Guard during the previous agreement period. Maritime transport plays a leading role in changing course towards a cleaner tomorrow. LNG complies with all the emission requirements and is highly energy-efficient,”says Jacob Granqvist, Vice President Maritime, from Gasum.
