Fluxys LNG NV/SA has awarded a turnkey project for expanding the LNG terminal in the Zeebrugge Port to TS LNG, a joint venture between Sener and Techint E&C.
The project will add a second jetty, enabling the terminal to increase capacity and further develop its role as a hub for supplying LNG as fuel for ships and long-haul trucks, said the companies’ announcement. When construction is completed by 2015, the terminal will be able to load and unload an additional 14,000 cu m/hr.
The last expansion of the 25-year-old terminal started up in 2008, expanding the terminal to 9 billion cu m/year from its original 4.5 billion cu m/year (OGJ Online, Aug. 2, 2004).
For the current project, TS LNG will carry out all activities and be in charge of project management, procurement, construction, and commissioning management.
