Gasum has secured an agreement with Celsa Armeringsstal AS in Mo i Rana in Norway. The agreement includes both the delivery of LNG and a new customer terminal at Mo industrial park. Celsa Armeringsstal AS is the Nordic region's leading manufacturer of reinforcing steel. The company produces steel from scrap metal and thus recycles approx. 700,000 tonne of metal every year and has invested heavily in sustainability in recent years. The transition to LNG will help the company reach the goal of reducing CO2 emissions.

Celsa Armeringsstal AS aims to reduce CO2 emissions by 50 percent by 2030, and by 2050 be completely CO2-neutral. Celsa Reinforcing Steel uses approx. 500 GWh of energy. A switch to LNG will reduce CO2 emissions by as much as 35%, which will be one of the most significant climate measures in the Mo i Rana area. The LNG from Gasum will be used in the steel production and rolling mill at Celsa Armeringsstal.

The use of LNG as a fuel provides a significant reduction in both local air pollution and carbon emissions compared to various oil products and coal. A switch from oil to LNG completely removes SOx and particulate emissions and reduces NOx emissions by up to 85 percent.

The terminal in Mo Industrial Park will be ready for operation on 1 July 2021.

The LNG is delivered to Mo i Rana by truck from Gasum's partly owned terminal in Tornio in northern Finland. The Tornio terminal is the largest LNG terminal in the Nordic region. It is located on the border with Sweden and is thus ideally located to serve customers in Finland, Sweden and Norway.
