Helsinki, November 22 - Neftegaz.RU. Finnish Hamina LNG terminal is moving into the completion phase and is due to begin commercial operations in October this year.
Viafin Process Piping Oy has been involved in the Terminal project from the outset.
Viafin has been responsible for the mechanical installations outside the tank.

Kalevi Mattila, Chairman of the Board of Hamina LNG Oy, says:
  • We are very pleased to have a competent and experienced partner to perform the finishing work on the Terminal
  • As a result of this co-operation, we can ensure that the Terminal will be ready in the planned timeframe
Hamina LNG Terminal is the only LNG terminal in Finland connected to the natural gas transmission system of Finland.
The grid supply capacities of the Hamina LNG Terminal will be approx. 3 TWh per year when the Terminal starts, and it is possible to increase the capacity by adding the evaporation capacity.

Plans to increase the capacity have been launched.
In addition to grid supply, distribution of gas by road transport is possible at a volume of 3 TWh per year, in which case the annual volume of gas supply from the Terminal as early as at the initial stage can be as much as 6 TWh per year.

It is possible to double the supply capacity to the transmission network this year, and in the next stage it is possible to further increase it to a level of approx. 7 TWh per year.

Hamina LNG Oy is a joint venture of Hamina Energy, the Estonia´s energy company Alexela and the technology group Wärtsilä.
The Terminal has a storage capacity of 30,000 m3.
The services of the Terminal also include loading of trucks and ships as well as bunkering ships.
