Swedegas, 50% owned by Enagas, begins construction on infrastructure to supply ships with LNG
The operator of the Swedish gas system, Swedegas, 50% owned by Enagás, has commenced construction of liquefied natural gas (LNG) supply infrastructure for ships in the Port of Gothenburg, Scandinavia’s largest.

This infrastructure will enable LNG to be supplied from an unloading station on land to vessels through a cryogenic pipeline which will keep the LNG at a temperature of -160ºC.

This project, the first stage in the construction of a future LNG terminal in Gothenburg and included on the list of EU Projects of Common Interest (PCI), encourages the use of LNG as an alternative fuel for marine transport. This energy source reduces sulphur (SOx), particulate matter and heavy metal emissions by close to 100%, nitrogen oxide by 80% and CO2 by 25%, compared to other conventional fuels.

Moreover, as the Port of Gothenburg is located at the entrance to the Baltic Sea, it is within the emission control area established by the International Maritime Organization (IMO). Strict environmental regulations are applied in this area, which is why LNG is being positioned as the cleanest fuel available to maritime operators.

The total investment for this facility amounts to approximately 3.4 million euros and is being co-financed by the EU through its Innovation and Networks Executive Agency (INEA).

Enagás has a 50% stake in Swedegas. The company owns the gas grid and an underground storage facility in the Sweden, and is operator of the country’s gas system.
