Remontowa LNG Systems, part of Remontowa Holding, will kick off construction of a pilot docking station, as part of an LNG distribution system based on cryogenic tank containers at the logistics terminal in Sławków, Poland.
The objective of the project is designing, construction and testing of the pilot LNG docking station, the company said in a statement on Thursday.
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, including road, sea and rail transport not yet used for these purposes.
The station will have an additional functionality enabling L-CNG refueling, with the construction based on a standard ISO frame. This will enable transport of the station to any location, including the port, which in turn will enable efficient bunkering of LNG-powered units.
The logistic terminal in Sławków, where the pilot station will be located is touted as a core rail/road terminal located on the Baltic-Adriatic TEN-T Core Network Corridor.
The project is valued at €1.9 million ($2.2 million) including the €945.291 subsidies from the European Union’s Connecting Europe Facility.
