Polish companies Grupa Lotos and Remontowa LNG Systems signed a letter of intent to develop a pilot liquefied natural gas distribution system.
The project will be co-financed by the European Union under its Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) program, and it includes the design, construction and implementation of a pilot docking station as part of the LNG distribution system based on cryogenic tank containers.
The main task of the station will be sustaining crucial safety technical parameters of intermodal, cryogenic LNG tank containers, enabling long-term storage. This will allow further LNG distribution via all possible transport means (rail, road and sea).
The station will have an additional functionality enabling L-CNG refueling. The pilot station will be located in the logistic terminal in Sławków (Śląsk region), which is a core rail/road terminal located on the Baltic-Adriatic TEN-T Core Network Corridor, Remontowa LNG Systems said in its statement.
The project is valued at €1.890.582 ($2.35 million) with the EU providing €945,291.
In April 2017, Grupa Lotos also requested funding for the feasibility study of the construction of a small-scale LNG reloading terminal in the port of Gdańsk and of LNG bunkering vessels as well as at launching the related preparatory activities.
