SIAD bags German bio-LNG gig

A unit of Italian chemical group SIAD has secured a contract from bioplus LNG, a part of Vier Gas Transport, for a small bio-LNG plant in Germany.

SIAD Macchine Impianti (SIAD MI) said in a statement it had won the turnkey construction contract in the fourth quarter of last year.

The firm did not provide the price tag of the deal.

According to SIAD, the small-scale bio-LNG plant will be built near Röthenbach an der Pegnitz in the Bavarian region of Germany.

The fully operational plant will produce 140 tons of bio-LNG per day, enough to supply 350 trucks.

This will prevent the emission of around 400,000 tons of CO2 per year into the atmosphere, more than the savings achieved by the entire German electric car fleet in 2020, SIAD claims.

Under the contract, SIAD will supply a SMART TB-LNG 140 modular liquefaction plant designed and custom-built to the customer’s requirements, including an amine-based natural gas treatment unit made by Tecno Project Industriale, a member of the SIAD group of companies.

The same supply will also include the installation of two oil-free reciprocating compressors, one for natural gas and one for boil-off gas (BOG), also designed and manufactured by SIAD MI, it said.

Additionally, SIAD MI will handle the installation of the plant for the planned commissioning in October 2024, it said.
