Skangas, a unit of Gasum, and the energy company Porin Prosessivoima have entered into an agreement on the supply of liquefied natural gas for a power plant in Kaanaa industrial park, Pori, Finland.
Porin Prosessivoima will buy LNG for the generation of energy used in production processes in the industrial park.
LNG will replace heavy fuel oil, which has been used for the power plant as a reserve power fuel, Skangas said in a statement.
The LNG will be delivered in the gaseous form to the power plant via a connection pipeline from the Skangas Pori LNG terminal to be completed in autumn 2016.
The Porin Prosessivoima power plant supplies energy for industrial operators in the Kaanaa and Pihlava areas and district heat for the Pori Energia district heat network.
