Wärtsilä receives notice to proceed for Norwegian biogas plant
Technology group Wärtsilä announced that it has been given a notice to proceed for a liquid biogas (bioLNG) plant to be constructed in Norway.
According to the release, the contract was awarded to the firm in April 2018 by Norwegian wastewater treatment company VEAS.
“Efficiency and environmental sustainability are two of the main pillars of Wärtsilä’s strategy for future energy use. This new plant represents both of these pillars, and we are proud to be partnering VEAS in this carbon reducing project,” said Arne Jakobsen, general manager of biogas liquefaction systems for Wärtsilä.
This marks the company’s third bioLNG plant in Norway and its fifth globally.
“Wärtsilä has the experience and technical know-how needed to integrate the new bioLNG facility with our existing plant. Their support throughout the project has been good, and they have shown themselves capable of meeting our demanding time schedule,” says Ragnhild Borchgrevink, managing director of VEAS.
The plant is expected to become in commercial operation during 2020.
