HAM Group has delivered to Etelä-Savon Energia Oy (ESE) an LNG filling station and satellite plant, which has been designed, built and commissioned by HAM Criogénica. The new facility is located in Mikkeli, Finland, the most important city in the South Savonia region.
The service station has an 80m3 vertical tank and an LNG dispenser that allows the refueling of trucks and heavy vehicles. It should be noted that the plant also acts as a satellite plant offering natural gas to an adjacent factory through forced regasification with a water/glycol and LNG exchanger, and with a double regulation line. The design made by HAM Criogénica allows an easy expansion of the NGV station, with a second LNG dispenser.
The project has been possible thanks to ESE’s commitment to LNG. The Finnish company, which has been providing electricity and heat in the Mikkeli region for more than a century, will offer its customers the possibility of refueling LNG, a clean and environmentally friendly fuel, thanks to the reduction of CO2 emissions, NOx and fine particles. In addition, LNG allows significant savings of 30-50% compared to other less eco-friendly fuels.
HAM Criogénica, the company in charge of developing the project for the new Etelä-Savon Energia service station, is a leader in the engineering sector, with extensive experience in the field of LNG and with more than 300 projects carried out throughout the world, designing and building facilities for all types of industries and the naval sector.
HAM Group has designed and built one out of every four LNG service stations that currently exist in Europe. The company’s fixed and mobile natural gas stations are located in Belgium, the Czech Republic, Finland, France, Germany, Holland, Italy, Poland, Slovakia, Spain, Switzerland and the UK.
