Wärtsilä gets green light for LNG terminal in Finland

13 days left until sulfur regulations: Finnish Wärtsilä has secured a green light for its first LNG import terminal in northern Finland, where LNG-driven ships will also be able to bunker the fuel.

Wärtsilä can now start work on the first LNG import terminal near the port of Tomio in northern Finland, says the supplier in a statement. The terminal will also serve as a bunkering hub for ships sailing on liquefied natural gas.

Work on the terminal will begin in January 2015 in collaboration with Manga LNG Oy, a joint venture between Outokumpu Group, Svenskt Stål AB, Skangass and EPV Energy. The order is worth around EUR 100 million and the terminal will offer complete solutions, storage and equipment for LNG regasification.
