Skangas signs LNG supply deal with Finnsementti
August 15, 2018
Skangas and cement manufacturer Finnsementti have entered into an agreement on the supply of LNG to the Raahe blast-furnace slag plant for production process use. Finnsementti will use LNG in the cement production process to dry aggregates. The energy switch from fuel oil to LNG will improve the efficiency rate and reduce the company’s carbon dioxide emissions.
LNG will be delivered to the Finnsementti Raahe plant by road tanker from the Tornio Manga LNG terminal co-owned by Skangas. Before being used, LNG will be regasified on the site. The Technical Services of the Skangas parent company Gasum will design and implement the equipment deliveries and installations relating to the introduction of LNG at the Raahe blast-furnace slag plant.
