Elengy, a unit of the French energy company and LNG player Engie, together with Fosmax LNG, has decided to build a truck loading facility at the Fos Cavaou terminal. 

The decision has been made as part of the energy transition and the strong demand for the fuel, Elengy said. In order to respond to a booming market, Fosmax LNG decided to build a station on its terminal with two loading bays from the outset.

The transport of LNG by tank truck allows the supply of industrial sites not connected to the natural gas grid as well as sites distributing LNG for land and marine fuel.

The company already has one LNG truck loading facility in operation at the Fos Tonkin terminal and the new facility will triple the combined loading capacity.

It is an additional capacity of 40 loading slots that will be added every day as of 2019, compared to 16 currently available at the LNG terminal in Fos Tonkin.

The third LNG terminal operated by Elengy in Montoir-de-Bretagne is experiencing the same demand and increased its loading capacity by 50 percent by the end of 2017, to 18 loads per day, following refurbishment works on the station and the optimization of the loading schedule.

Works on the new facility at the Fos Cavaou LNG terminal will start this summer for a commissioning during the first quarter 2019, Elengy said.

It is part of the ‘Motorways of the Sea’ concept defined by the European Union, which co-finances it as part of its Connecting European Facility-Transport programme (CEF-T).
