The new facility will include a biogas upgrading and liquefaction plant. It will enable VEAS to produce vehicle quality biogas, creating an alternative to fossil fuels and reducing CO2 emissions.
The new bioLNG plant will be incorporated with the company's current biogas plant, which is the biggest sewage sludge treatment plant in Norway. The total bioLNG production capacity will reach 20 tons per day.
The aim of the bioLNG plant is to upgrade the biogas, hot water production, liquefaction, storage and truck loading capability. The on-site installation is planned to be completed within a 14-month time-frame. The plant is expected to start operation during 2020.
Efficiency and environmental sustainability are two of the main pillars of Wärtsilä’s strategy for future energy use. This new plant represents both of these pillars, and we are proud to be partnering VEAS in this carbon reducing project
