Wärtsilä to supply world’s largest bio-LNG plant in Norway
The plant for Biokraft, a subsidiary of the Scandinavian Biogas Group, will have a 25 tons-per-day (tpd) capacity and will extend an existing bio-LNG production plant in Skogn, also supplied by Wärtsilä, to a combined total of 50 tpd. This makes it the largest facility of its kind in the world.
According to Wärtsilä, the market for liquefied biogas continues to expand along with the increase in global efforts to limit the use of fossil fuels. Bio-LNG is an abundant renewable energy source that is used as green fuel for transport, industrial, and marine applications.
“Wärtsilä’s latest mixed refrigerant – MR – technology used in our liquefaction plants is extremely reliable, and offers the lowest operating costs for liquefying biogas,” said Maria Ortiz, sales manager of biogas solutions at Wärtsilä Gas Solutions.
“We are proud to have once again been selected by Biokraft, since it represents a clear endorsement of customer satisfaction.”
The equipment is scheduled for delivery in May next year.
