Polish LNG terminal loads 5000th truck
Polish LNG terminal operator, Polskie LNG, said it has reached a milestone at the President Lech Kaczyński facility in Świnoujście.
The company noted in a brief statement through its social media channels that it has loaded 5000 LNG tank trucks since the facility started operations.
The first ISO container was loaded at the facility in September last year, marking the start of operation of the transshipment LNG installation for railroad tank cars and ISO containers.
The company said that 5000 LNG trucks is equal to 200,000 cubic meters of the chilled fuel.
Polskie LNG is in the process of expanding operations at the facility through three key projects; the construction of the third LNG storage tank, delivery of additional process installations increasing the regasification capacity to 7.5 billion cubic meters per year, and the LNG transshipment installation together with a railway siding.
The Polish LNG terminal in Świnoujście is the country’s flagship project to diversify gas supplies and reduce dependence on pipeline imports from Russia.
Polish Oil and Gas Company (PGNiG) is in charge of all the LNG supplies coming to the import terminal operated by Gaz-System’s unit Polskie LNG.
