Wärtsilä selected for Norwegian bioLNG plant expansion

Technology group Wärtsilä has won a contract to supply a biogas liquefaction plant for Biokraft, a subsidiary of the Scandinavian Biogas Group, at an existing bioLNG production facility in Skogn, Norway.

Expansion of the plant will double output to 50 tonnes a day, making it the largest facility of its kind in the world. The project demonstrates growing demand for liquefied biogas as a sustainable replacement for fossil fuels. BioLNG is widely available and used in growing volumes as a fuel in transport, industrial and marine applications.

Commenting on the contract, Wärtsilä’s sales manager, Industrial and Marine Applications, Maria Ortiz, said: “Wärtsilä’s latest mixed refrigerant technology used in our liquefaction plants is extremely reliable, and offers the lowest operating costs for liquefying biogas. We are proud to have once again been selected by Biokraft since it represents a clear endorsement of customer satisfaction.”

The order was placed in April and the Wärtsilä equipment is due to be delivered in May 2022.
