Wartsila says wins contract to build world’s largest bio-LNG plant

Finland’s Wartsila said Wednesday it won a contract to supply what it says is the world’s largest bio-LNG production plant.

Under the deal, Wartsila will supply the biogas liquefaction plant to Norway-based Biokraft, a subsidiary of the Scandinavian Biogas Group and a major player in the global biogas market.

Scandinavian Biogas said in April it would invest NOK 170 million ($20.4 million) in the biogas plant outside Trondheim. The plant should be ready in the third quarter of 2022.

The plant will, among others, supply the shipping firm Hurtigruten with bio-LNG as fuel for their fleet of ships.

The 25 tons per day capacity plant will extend an existing bio-LNG production plant at Skogn in Norway, also supplied by Wartsila, to a combined total of 50 tons per day making it “by far the largest facility of its kind in the world,” Wartsila said.

Moreover, Wartsila said it won the order in April.

The market for liquefied biogas continues to expand along with the increase in global efforts to restrict the use of fossil fuels.

Bio-LNG is an “abundant renewable energy source that is used as ‘green’ fuel in transportation, industrial, and marine applications,” Wartsila says.

The Finnish firm added it would deliver the equipment in May 2022 but it did not reveal the price tag of the contract.
