Norway-based LNG designer Fuelgarden Energy, an independent LNG specialist offering lower-cost fuel solutions, has been awarded a Front-End Engineering & Design (FEED) contract on a multi-purpose LNG plant to be established in the UK. The LNG plant will supply LNG as ship bunkers to LNG-fuelled vessels operating in UK waters, and provide natural gas for heating purposes at a newbuild factory.
Dag Lilletvedt, founder and CEO of Fuelgarden, explains this will be the first time such a multi-purpose small-scale LNG regasification and LNG bunkering plant is being built in the UK. The LNG plant shall be ready for operations in the beginning of 2018.
“As an LNG designer with specialization in off-grid energy solutions we are we are very pleased to have been awarded this FEED contract in the UK,” said Lilletvedt. “Industrial companies as well as shipping companies are constantly looking for ways to reduce their fuel bills as well as their emissions. Through our engineering capabilities and small-scale LNG expertise we are able to combine the needs of an industrial plant for gas with ships requiring LNG as fuel”.
Fuelgarden has been awarded the FEED contract by a major international industrial company. Due to confidentiality reasons the name of the customer and location for the installation will not be revealed at this time.
Fuelgarden’s aim is to enable off-grid energy consumers to reduce fuel costs, reduce infrastructure complexities, and reduce emissions.
