Published by
Tanks and Terminals,


The Tornio Manga LNG receiving terminal, built under a turnkey contract by Wärtsilä, has successfully unloaded its first shipment of LNG.

The shipment, comprising 15 000 m3 of LNG, arrived onboard the Coral Energy, a time-chartered LNG carrier operated by Skangas.

The cooldown process of the terminal and the LNG unloading process were completed on schedule over a period of eight days, with all safety procedures fully secured. The successful unloading marks the beginning of the commissioning phase of the project.

The LNG from the terminal will be used to provide clean burning energy for local and regional industries in Northern Finland, Sweden and Norway, and will provide bunkering for LNG-fuelled ships visiting the northern Baltic Sea waters.

Commercial operation of the terminal is set to begin in the summer of 2018.
