Nature Energy Joins Partnership for Danish LNG Bunker Facility

Friday December 16, 2016

Nature Energy has announced that it has joined Bunker Holding Group (Bunker Holding), Kosan Crisplant A/S (Kosan Crisplant), and Port of Frederikshavn in the partnership known as Nordic Liquefaction (Nordliq), aimed at transforming biogas from gaseous to liquid state to enable "greener transport" in the Baltic Sea and the North Sea.

"The just over 100,000 ships which pass the strait at Skagen every year makes the port of Frederikshavn the optimal location for the new liquefaction plant; via the transformation of biogas from gaseous to liquid state, the plant will ensure the development of the market for sustainable fuels mainly for maritime transport and subsequently for heavy road transport – not only in Denmark, but in all of Scandinavia," said Nature Energy.

Under the partnership, Nature Energy will supply the biogas for the plant.

The company says it has many years' experience with selling and distributing natural gas to Danish industrial and private customers, and notes that it "has become a leader" in the production of Danish biogas.

"This will ensure that the new facility will feature Danish-produced green energy in form of LBG (liquefied biogas). The design of the facility is planned for 2017, while commissioning is scheduled for the end of 2018," said Nature Energy.

As Ship & Bunker has reported, the plant is reportedly being built at a cost of at least $33 million.
