Sacyr Fluor, a unit of Spanish construction firm Sacyr, said it has started work on two separate LNG contracts for France’s Elengy and Belgium’s Fluxys.
Elengy, the unit of Engie’s GRTgaz and operator of three LNG terminals, recently awarded Sacyr Fluor a contract to work on the jetty at its Fos Tonkin terminal to allow for bunkering operations.
Under the deal, Sacyr Fluor said it would provide “detailed engineering, procurement management and construction management of the priority works” to adapt the jetty for bunkering activities.
In addition, the firm says it would execute the new project jointly with an already existing contract to renovate the Fos Tonkin terminal and extend its operations for an additional ten years.
“Both contracts result from the successful execution of the basic engineering last year and are expected to finalize by June 2022,” Sacyr Fluor said.
To remind, Elengy said in January last year it would continue to operate its Fos Tonkin after it had secured capacity bookings for the entire yearly capacity of 1.5 Bcm until 2028.
The terminal operator aims to upgrade the facility to become a “multimodal platform in the western Mediterranean basin” offering LNG as fuel for customers in the maritime, rail, and road transport sectors.
Zeebrugge LNG expansion
Besides the French project, Sacyr Fluor said it has recently secured a contract from Fluxys related to capacity expansion at the latter’s terminal located in the port of Zeebrugge.
Sacyr Fluor said it would work to “expand the regasification capacity of the Zeebrugge LNG plant and reduce CO2 emissions, as well as increase and automate the number of LNG truck loading bays.”
Belgium’s Fluxys said in February it took a final investment decision to boost regasification capacity at the terminal following a successful open season.
The firm aims to wrap up the new 6 mtpa project as of early 2026.
The Zeebrugge terminal currently consists of five tanks with a storage capacity of 566,000 cbm and a regasification capacity of about 6.6 mtpa.
