TES picks jettyless tech for Wilhelmshaven LNG import project

Belgium-based Tree Energy Solutions (TES) has contracted Norway’s ECOnnect Energy to provide the latter’s jettyless IQuay solution for the government-backed FSRU LNG import terminal in Germany’s Wilhelmshaven port.

According to a joint statement, ECOnnect would deliver its jettyless IQuay solution in twelve months in bid to bolster Germany’s energy security.

The solution would connect the FSRU to the onshore terminal, substituting a conventional jetty, and fast-tracking the deployment while minimizing construction costs and environmental impacts, the statement said.

It would be the critical link between offshore gas storage units to the onshore terminal directly connected to the Open Grid Europe (OGE) gas grid, it said.

In 2025, TES plans to reuse the IQuay system for liquid CO2 export for hydrogen production, effectively closing the industrial emissions loop by utilizing CO2 for green hydrogen applications.

The partners did not reveal the price tag of the deal.

This contract award follows the announcement that the TES Wilhelmshaven green gas terminal had been included to the list of priority projects backed by Germany’s LNG acceleration law.

In September, the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Climate Protection selected TES, Germany’s E.ON, and a unit of France’s Engie to develop and implement Germany’s fifth FSRU-based project in the autumn of 2023.

Moreover, the project will feature Excelerate Energy’s 2015-built 138,000-cbm Excelsior, which has a sendout capacity of 5 bcm per year.

Excelerate and Germany finalized a five-year charter deal for this unit last month.
