A cryogenic liquid container (ISO container) at Polskie LNG’s Swinoujscie LNG terminal was loaded with LNG on 20 September 2018. The LNG terminal provides the service of loading road tankers with LNG. This is the first ISO container loading operation in the history of the Swinoujscie plant.
The 40 ft long TVS-40-PB-10 model of ISO container is provided with side and rear connection fittings. The tank was loaded with 16.2 t of LNG using a flexible connection for side fuelling provided at the modernised tanker slot C.
Cryogenic tank containers are commonly used for the transport of atmospheric gases and LNG in intermodal transport i.e. by sea, road and rail. They may be also used as stationary storage tanks where the construction of LNG satellite stations is not considered profitable for various reasons. ISO containers provide a safe method of storing technical gases, and they are constructed according to TPED 2010/35/EC directive and the requirements of EN 13530 standard.
Polskie LNG is working on a programme of infrastructure expansion that will allow the company to offer new services in the future, including the possibility of loading liquefied gas onto ISO containers for rail transport. The new services to be provided by the LNG Terminal include handling vessels of different sizes, LNG bunkering on ships, as well as reloading LNG from larger vessels to smaller ones and from onshore tanks onto vessels. Other elements of the planned expansion programme involve the construction of the third LNG process storage tank and the increase of regasification capacity of the terminal from 5 billion nm3 to 7.5 billion nm3.
