Sweden: LNG import terminal

The new LNG import terminal to be erected by NCC Group will be the first of its type in Sweden and will facilitate the utilization of natural gas in Central Sweden. Fortum, among others, will use the natural gas to replace petroleum for city-gas production in Stockholm and the Nynas refinery will use the natural gas in its production of hydrogen gas. The LNG tank will be 33m high and 38m in diameter and will be constructed in slip form in August 2009 and completed during the first half of 2010. NCC will also construct a harbor, which will be able to receive tankers with a maximum length of 160m and a depth of nine meters. A 100m-long bridge will connect Brunnsviksholme with the mainland. The assignment also includes construction of a service building, an access road to Norviksvägen, a vehicle bay for receipt of LNG and some ground work. The terminal and its infrastructure are scheduled to be in operation on 21 May 2011.
