Wartsila clinches contract for Swedish bio-LNG plant

Finnish tech firm Wartsila has secured a contract to upgrade a Swedish bio-LNG plant.

According to a statement by Wartsila, the new plant is an extension of an existing biomethane and bio-LNG plant supplied earlier by the firm, and will bring the production of bio-LNG from 20 to 45 tons per day.

Tekniska Verken, a municipality-owned company, is the owner of the plant located in Linkoping.

Wartsila said the plant produces biomethane from organic waste, including food waste, and from the municipality’s wastewater treatment residue.

Bio-LNG is used as fuel for the transport sector and industry in Sweden. At Tekniska Verken’s subsidiaries Svensk Biogas bio-LNG filling stations for heavy vehicles represents a circular business model, the firm said.

Wartsila said the order was booked in the fourth quarter of this year, but it did not reveal the price tag of the contract.

Moreover, the Wartsila scope features its Puregas biogas upgrading system Puregas CA, its mixed refrigerant (MR) biogas liquefaction solution, a 250 cbm storage tank, an export station, and a BOG module.

The biogas upgrading system has the capacity to also send biomethane to the local biogas grid.

Wartsila plans to deliver the equipment in December 2024, and expects the new plant to become operational in the first half of 2025.
