Germany-based TGE Gas Engineering, a unit of China’s CIMC, said it has raised the roof on the third large storage tank at Guangdong Energy’s Huizhou LNG terminal in China.
According to TGE Gas, the roof was raised on the 200,000 cbm LNG tank on August 22.
The project will now enter the final installation phase.
This follows the recent roof raising of the first two 200,000 cbm tanks at the LNG import facility developed by Guangdong Huizhou LNG.
TGE Gas is working on the EPC contract revealed last year with its consortium partner CIMC EnTech.
Chinese state-owned power utility Guangdong Energy announced the construction start of the LNG import project worth about $1 billion in July 2021.
The first phase includes the three LNG tanks and related facilities for connecting, unloading, gasification and export, and one LNG ship unloading berth with a capacity of up to 266,000 cbm.
TGE Gas says the project will have an annual maximum capacity of 6.1 mtpa.
The project is scheduled to be completed and put into operation by the end of 2023, according to the firm.
