Polskie LNG has launched a tender procedure to select the contractor of the fourth project under the LNG Terminal Expansion Program, being the construction of an additional jetty. The additional facility will include measures to allow for the introduction of Liquefied Natural Gas bunkering to meet the increased opportunity from natural gas-fuelled shipping.
The project is implemented in cooperation with the Szczecin and Świnoujście Seaports Authority. The contractor selection procedure is due to be completed by the end of 2019, whereas the construction of the new jetty is planned to be completed in 2023.
The contract notice published on 2 January 2019 officially commences the tender procedure aimed at selecting the contractor for one of four projects under the expansion program of the President Lech Kaczyński LNG Terminal in Świnoujście, i.e. the construction of the second jetty. The deadline for submitting requests to participate in the tender is 7 February 2019.
The new jetty will enable the provision of new crucial services at the LNG Terminal in Świnoujście, including methane carriers loading and unloading, LNG transhipment and loading LNG bunkers, as well as bunkering service. These services follow the recent trend in Small Scale LNG (SSLNG) development owing to which the LNG Terminal in Świnoujście will be able to satisfy the growing market demand as well as to respond to a number of European regulations including climate and environmental laws which stimulate the transition towards low-emission fuels.
