MAN commissioned “Owner’s engineer”
The new gas terminal in the port of Oxelösund extends Swedish methane infrastructure significantly and improves access for the country’s industry. OxGas AB, a fully-owned subsidiary of the Port of Oxelösund, has appointed MAN Energy Solutions as “Owner’s engineer” of development and construction of the new terminal.
Feeding liquefied gas to SSAB’s steel production in Oxelösund, as well as directly to vessels in the port of Oxelösund, demands a multi-functional and flexible solution. OxGas has engaged MAN Energy Solutions to support them in the development of a class-leading functionality, designed and built to offer excellent, long-term operational performance.
It is important for us to work with a company that understands our vision and requirements for what will be the single biggest investment ever made in the port, says Douglas Heilborn, CEO of OxGas AB and the Port of Oxelösund. MAN Energy Solutions have the experience, competence and pro-activeness needed to offer cryogenic and complex multifunctional energy solutions.
MAN Energy Solutions competence centre for Cryogenic solutions, MAN Cryo, is based in Gothenburg. The company has been closely involved in the development of previous gas terminal projects in Sweden.
We are very proud of having been selected to support OxGas and the Port of Oxelösund in the development of their new business, says Louise Andersson, Head of MAN Cryo.
Carsten Dommermuth, Senior Manager International Business Development at MAN Energy Solutions adds:
We strongly believe in liquefied natural gas and other sustainable synthetic fuels as an important strategic pillar to decarbonize the power industry, transport and industry sector.
