Finnish technology group Wärtsilä has been given the notice to proceed for a liquid biogas (bioLNG) plant to be built in Asker, Norway.

The contract for the plant was awarded in April 2018 by VEAS, a Norwegian wastewater treatment and biogas producing company, and the notice to proceed was signed in December 2018, Wärtsilä said in its statement.

The new facility will comprise a biogas upgrading and liquefaction plant. It will enable VEAS to produce biogas creating an alternative to fossil fuels and reducing CO2 emissions.

The new bioLNG plant will be incorporated together with the company’s existing biogas plant. The total bioLNG production capacity will be 20 tons per day.

The scope of supply for the bioLNG plant includes upgrading of the biogas, hot water production, liquefaction, storage and truck loading capability.

Wärtsilä is delivering the system on a fast-track basis, and the on-site installation is scheduled to be completed within a 14-month time-frame. The plant is expected to become in commercial operation during 2020.
