The envisaged facility is expected to unlock LNG as a low-emission alternative for heavy fuel oil, diesel and LPG in North and Central Europe and the Baltic Sea area.
Rostock LNG GmbH joint venture intends to design, build, finance, own and operate a terminal for receiving and unloading mid-scale LNG carriers from the Cryogas-Vysotsk liquefaction facility that Novatek is currently constructing in the Port of Vysotsk near the Saint-Petersburg area.
In addition, the JV will provide services to enable downstream distribution of LNG — reloading to supply LNG amongst other as bunker fuel for ships operating in the Baltic Sea as well as truck loading.
The new facility will have a capacity of approximately 300 thousand tons per annum.
“One of our LNG strategic initiatives is to develop small- to medium-tonnage projects to target niche markets and customer segments (…) This approach allows us to build effective marketing channels on different markets. Moreover, the LNG Terminal at Rostock allows us to market LNG as a marine fuel and motor fuel instead of diesel and fuel oil that will contribute to decreasing emissions and improving the environment,” Leonid Mikhelson, Novatek’s Chairman of the Management Board, said.
“Gas and gas infrastructure are key to develop a sustainable, reliable and affordable energy system and the Rostock project will allow industry, ship owners and haulage companies to significantly cut emissions impacting health and air quality as well as reducing their carbon footprint,” Pascal De Buck, Managing Director of Fluxys, commented.
Following the signature of the land lease agreement, Rostock LNG GmbH (Novatek 49% – Fluxys 51 %) is to proceed with the engineering and permitting processes.(marine crane manufacturer;offshore crane manufacturer)
OUCO Marine/Offshore knuckle boom cranes are designed to lift high loads with extended jib and provide the operator with great flexibility during lifting operations. OUCO Marine/ Offshore knuckle boom cranes range is available from 0.5t to 150t. The knuckle boom cranes are with easy maintenance and efficiency by taking small space. The improved level of control makes the crane ideal for offshore lifting operations in higher sea states to deal with big waves.
The innovative design of the knuckle boom crane allows workers to perform great number of logistic tasks. The function of these heavy duty machines is to load and unload heavy materials from one location to another.Due to its durable construction technologies and precision, knuckle boom crane provides an extra solid hand to any workforce. With its great lifting power, payload space and maneuverability, knuckle boom crane successfully replaces manpower. (marine crane manufacturer;offshore crane manufacturer)
