Nordic LNG producer and supplier Skangas and energy company Porin Prosessivoima signed a deal for the supply of liquefied natural gas for the production of steam and heat in Kaanaa Industrial Park, Pori, Finland.
LNG will be delivered in the gaseous form to the energy company via a connection pipeline from the Pori LNG terminal, Skangas, part of Gasum group said in a statement.
“Liquefied natural gas is a competitive and clean fuel from the environmental perspective. Compared with other fuels, gas is easy to use and we make savings in operational costs,” said Porin Prosessivoima managing director Timo Mäki.
Skangas’ sales manager Jouni Bedda noted that the liquefied natural gas will be delivered from the Pori LNG terminal via a direct pipeline connection to the energy company.
LNG can replace the use of fuels such as coal and oil-based fuels in industry, energy production as well as maritime and road transport, Skangas said.
