Fluxys LNG N.V./ S.A. has awarded to the engineering and construction group SENER a turnkey project for the extension of the liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal in the Zeebrugge Port, 20 km away from Brugge (Belgium).
SENER will carry out this project as part of the TS LNG joint venture, formed by SENER and Techint.
Representatives from Fluxys LNG, SENER and Techint signed the contract last April 18th at Fluxys LNG offices in Brussels.
The extension works will consist of adding a second jetty, enabling the facility to increase capacity and further develop into a hub for supplying LNG as fuel for ships and long-haul trucks. Once the construction works are over in mid-2015, the terminal will have an additional LNG loading/unloading capacity of 14,000 m3/hour.
Within the joint venture, SENER will carry out all plant engineering activities, being also in charge for project management, procurement and construction, as well as for construction and commissioning management.
SENER, through its engineering and construction activity, specializes in turnkey projects in LNG plants, a sector in which it has carried out numerous projects both in Spain, Europe and Latin America.
SENER has carried out some of these projects as part of the TS LNG company, a joint venture between SENER and Techint that develops EPC contracts in the LNG sector. To date, TS LNG has been responsible for outstanding projects such as Gate terminal, in the Netherlands – an international reference in the regasification plants industry – and the Dunkirk terminal, in France.
