The biggest liquefied natural gas terminal in the Nordics is opened on June 11 in Röyttä harbour, Tornio. The new terminal answers to the growing demand for low emission LNG and strengthens LNG’s security of supply in the Northern Nordics. The new terminal significantly enhances the area’s competitiveness by ensuring the availability of energy that is affordable, has low emissions and can be used by the local industry, as well as maritime and heavy-duty traffic. The deployment of Tornio’s new LNG terminal will ensure shipments to Northern Finland and Sweden. The terminal is the result of multiple companies working together for several years through Manga LNG, a JV consisting of Outokumpu and SSAB steel companies, EPV Energy and the energy company Gasum. Wärtsilä was selected as the main contractor.

Mr Kimmo Rahkamo, Vice President, Natural gas and LNG, Gasum, said that “Tornio terminal is a ground-breaking collaboration between several companies and its opening is a long-awaited milestone for all of us. The deployment of the new LNG terminal significantly supports the emission goals of Finland, as well as the entire Nordics. The shift to cleaner fuel solutions is a worldwide trend that needs to be accelerated in every way possible. With the use of LNG, we reduce the local pollutant emissions of maritime and heavy-duty traffic, while keeping the industry of Northern Finland competitive by offering energy that has low emissions and is affordable to the needs of different operators.”
