MAN Energy Solutions has won the contract to design and deliver an LNG regasification terminal for Forchem in Rauma, Finland. Forchem, a company producing chemical and animal feed products from tall oil, has chosen to convert the boiler for generating steam for the refinery process into natural gas/ bio-gas. MAN Energy Solution will deliver a tailor-made installation, including offloading skid for LNG trailers, vertically standing 200 cbm vacuum-insulated tank and vaporiser unit.
The installation will be located besides Forchems plant, enabling Forchem to receive deliveries of LNG and LBG (liquified bio gas) via tank-truck deliveries. It is designed specifically for Forchem’s requirements considering local climate conditions, minimum maintenance requirements and long lifetime. MAN Energy Solutions was chosen as supplier owing to its extensive experience with cryogenic solutions, a well-thought-through design, and a global aftermarket support through MAN PrimeServ.
The company is also keen to grow its presence in the Finnish market with this project, added Roger Göthberg, Managing Director MAN Energy Solutions in Finland and Sweden. “We see growth potential both within the industrial and marine segments. Having established the Finnish Branch office in 2017, we are now seeing a growing interest in our solutions.”
The Finnish company, Wega Group, assisted Forchem with the procurement of the LNG regasification terminal. Wega is an independent energy company, specialised in smart-energy sourcing. Wega has experience from several LNG projects and sees a growing demand for LNG in industrial applications, shipping and road transport in Finland.
MAN Energy Solutions took over fuel-gas specialist Cryo AB in 2015 and and fully integrated it into its business. Under the brand MAN Cryo, the company offers since then systems for the storage, distribution and handling of liquefied gases.
