Roof raised on the third LNG tank in Swinoujscie, says Gaz-System

Poland’s LNG terminal operator Gaz-System announced that another milestone of the expansion project of the LNG terminal in Swinoujscie has been completed as its contractors have raised the roof on the third LNG storage tank.

The tank roof weighs over 1,000 tons and it was lifted to a height of some 40 meters using air pressure from fans. The new 180,000 cubic metres tank is part of the expansion project that will considerably boost the capacity of Poland’s LNG terminal.

The expansion project aims to increase the terminal’s capacity and also to launch new services (bunkering of ships, loading LNG on small, mid and large scale LNG vessels, LNG transhipment from ship to ship), as well as to increase flexibility. Gaz-System said that the expansion will take place in two phases.

The first phase which included boosting the terminal’s regasification capacity to 6.2 billion cubic meteres (bcm) per year was completed at the beginning of 2022.

The second phase includes the third tank and an additional jetty for LNG unloading, loading and bunkering. Once complete in 2023, the expanded terminal will have a total regasification capacity of about 8.3 bcm per year.

The project is also listed on the European list of Projects of Common Interest (PCI).
